Dr. Martin Luther King

Today we pause to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The activist and minister was a moral, spiritual, and political pioneer of the civil rights movement. From his leadership on the Montgomery bus boycott, to his Letter from Birmingham Jail, to his “I Have a Dream” speech, Dr. King’s words and actions inspire those struggling for social progress to this day.
