Today Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Would have been 90 years old.
Here are some MLK,Jr questions for you and your circle of influence:
How will you celebrate his birthday today or next Monday, January 21, the day the King National Holiday is celebrated?
Will you attend the Annual Program at Ebenezer Baptist Church, where he served as Co-Pastor and his father served as Pastor?
Will you participate in a MLKJr Day of Service?
Will you attend one of the many marches or other celebrations across the region?
Will you take time to learn more about MLKing,Jr with your circle of friends and family?
Will you read one of the many books about him?
Will you read one of his speeches (google Dr. MLKing, Jr. speeches) other than his “I Have A Dream Speech”? Or, watch any of his less famous, yet just as important, speeches or interviews online?
To study King, his life and works will amaze you. He was a brilliant visionary. You will find that many of his speeches, letters and other works seem timeless. Some of them are still appropriate today…in 2019.
How do you believe things might be different if he were still alive?
What things did he envision during his lifetime do you believe still need to be fulfilled?
