Today we celebrate the birthday of one of the great civil rights leaders of our time, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Many Americans remember listening to Dr. King as he implored our nation to move toward racial equality and freedom for all.
His words are still as stirring today as they were in 1963: “I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. I’m certain Dr. King would take great pride in the progress we have made and would encourage each of us to remain vigilant to the goals of his movement. Today, we honor his legacy.
