A Tribute To King’s Legacy

Spoken 44 years ago, these are Martin Luther King’s chilling last words…

The next day our nation fell silent…

But King’s voice became louder than words!

“…Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. Never again can we afford to live with the narrow, provincial “outside agitator” idea. Anyone who lives inside the United States can never be considered an outsider anywhere within its bounds.” ~from ” Letters From a Birmingham Jail” by Martin Luther King, Jr.
