Happy Birthday To The Late, Great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an escapable network of mutuality… whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I just wanted to take a moment to honor the late, great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on his birthday today. The southern pastor who became a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, made a colossal effort to help abolish racism, inequality, war and greed from our country. His humanitarian work will never be forgotten. Happy birthday and continue to rest in power, Dr. MLK, Jr. He would have turned 91 today.

I took the pleasure in posting some rarely seen footage of Martin Luther King, Jr., speaking to students at Barratt Junior High School in Philadelphia on October 26, 1967, where he delivered his speech, “What Is Your Life’s Blueprint?” The video is a bit over 20 minutes long, but when you have some time, it’s truly worth it to watch.
