Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


“How could I ever give up when I stand on the shoulders of great men and women?   How could I ever forget the due diligence, faith, pain or press of  so many nameless and famous history makers and dreamers?  I will continue to remember and give thanks for the dreamer who led this nation into social moral transformation with his anointing, vision, leadership, hope, love, wisdom, courage and sacrifice.”  ~ Jewel Diamond Taylor

Oslo, Norway, accepting Nobel Peace prize…

“I have the audacity to believe that people everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies, education and culture for their minds, and dignity, equality and freedom for their spirits. I believe that what self-centered men have torn down, men other-centered can build up. I still believe that one day mankind will bow before the altars of God and be crowned triumphant over war and bloodshed, and nonviolent redemptive goodwill will proclaim the rule of the land.” ~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr

Birmingham jail letter  April 16, 1963…

“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.”
