Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr is one of our countries most well known activists. He is an inspiration to many people and his reach has become timeless. His message was simple to understand. When one of us experiences injustice this means injustice can happen to any of us. Regardless if that injustice is based on race, sex, religion, drug use, sexual orientation, nationality, or any of the other ways we choose to divide people up into.
1.) “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.” Martin Luther King Jr. for Letter from the Birmingham Jail on 16 April 1963
2.) “A man dies when he refuses to stand up for that which is right. A man dies when he refuses to stand up for justice. A man dies when he refuses to take a stand for that which is true.” A speech on courage, Selma, Alabama, March 8, 1965 by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
3.) “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” ‘Strength to Love’ by Martin Luther King (1963) pg. 35
4.) “The time is always right to do what’s right.” Martin Luther King Jr. on October 22, 1964 in his speech on “The Future of Integration” at Oberlin College.
5.) “What we are facing today is the fact that through our scientific and technological genius we’ve made of this world a neighborhood. And now through our moral and ethical commitment we must make of it a brotherhood. We must all learn to live together as brothers – or we will all perish together as fools. This is the great issue facing us today. No individual can live alone; no nation can live alone. We are tied together.” Martin Luther King Jr. June 1965 Oberlin College speech, “Remaining Awake Through a Great Revolution.”
