Metro Detroit Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Observances

martin_luther_king_-_march_on_washington“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”
“Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable… Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.”
“The time is always right to do what is right.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Across the community, we will have the opportunity to gather, to remember his words, to honor his legacy, and to renew our commitment to carry the torch of social justice.
