Honor, Respect & Love: Martin Luther King Jr.

Google Him Baby!

On the third Monday of January, schools, federal offices and the like across America remain closed as we celebrate the birth, life and dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

It is a time for the nation to remember the injustices that Dr. King fought; a time to remember his fight for the freedom, equality and dignity of all races and peoples; a time to remember the message of change through nonviolence. Although many people see this as “a day without work” or “a day away from school,” it is so much more than that; it is the celebration of equality, the celebration of freedom and the celebration of a truly inspiring individual.

Below is the full version of Dr. King’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech, which he delivered at the Lincoln Memorial (Washington, D.C.) on Aug. 28, 1963.
