Monday the 20th is Martin Luther King Day. Martin Luther King Jr. dreamed of a world more tolerant than the one he lived in.
Martin Luther King, Jr., grew up in a place where people used words that made him feel bad. This beautifully illustrated, award-winning book shows how Martin used words to fight for equal rights for black people. When Martin was growing up, he saw the words “Whites Only” all over town. But he remembered the words of his mother, “You are as good as anyone.”
Watch the video of the book, Martin’s Big Words.
The audio, and text, of his I Have A Dream Speech, hosted by American Rhetoric. Video of Martin Luther King – I Have A Dream Speech – August 28, 1963. Dr. King once remarked, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction.”
