REMEMBERING

DR. MARTIN

LUTHER

KING

JR.

This month, we remember Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as the revolutionary he was. We wanted to post the quotes that you don't see, the quotes that people skip over, the quotes that aren't just about love, but also justice, recognizing privilege, and civil disobedience. He didn't sugarcoat anything and neither do we. May we continue to fight for what he (and many others) longed to see.

We read 10 letters, sermons, and speeches written and delivered by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and took the quotes in each that hit us the hardest. We challenge you to really reflect on the words of a man who changed the world. 

Here are the titles and where we found them:
