Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the most important figures of the 20th Century.
Unfortunately, we live in a time where his lessons are needed more than ever.
Especially when your president refers to other countries as ****holes, spews racist rhetoric on the daily, and spends most of his energy antagonizing immigrants and trying to deport them and their families.
Dr. King’s March to Washington, “I Have A Dream Speech,” and the Birmingham Campaign single-handedly changed the course of American history and is still a huge inspiration and model for modern-day protests.
He is one of the most influential Americans that has ever lived and his leadership and grace are sorely missed, especially at this time in our country.
But it is up to us to pick up the torch he lit and—each and every day—carry it in support of his legacy.
