Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  ( January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968)

His life and legacy remembered on a national holiday every third Monday of January.


“And I must confess, my friends  that the road ahead will not always be smooth. There will still be rocky places of frustration and meandering points of bewilderment. There will be inevitable setbacks here and there. And there will be those moments when the buoyancy of hope will be transformed into the fatigue of despair. Our dreams will sometimes be shattered and our ethereal hopes blasted… But difficult and painful as it is, we must walk on in the days ahead with an audacious faith in the future.”

 From the “Where Do We Go From Here?” speech delivered by Dr. King to the Southern Christian Leadership Conference on August 16, 1967 in Atlanta, Georgia.
