This Monday marked Martin Luther King Day in the US. Although he focused his work in America, he is probably the most famous civil rights and anti racist campaigner in history. I think most of us can recite, at least part, of his famous ‘I have dream speech’, given in 1963 to an audience if more than 250 thousand people in Washington.
But what about his lesser known speeches/ letters. His daughter, Bernice King, this week said that ” he was resolute about eradicating racism, poverty and militarism. And about corrective justice work. Don’t just quote him. Encourage and enact policies that reflect his teachings”
Here are some links to more of his wider work that she encourages us all to read/ listen to in order to understand him and his aims more.
