MLK Day

The importance of Martin Luther King Jr’s “I have a dream” speech was not only the power behind his words but the fact that his words brought greater attention to the Civil Rights Movement which had been going on for years. After delivering his famous remarks, congress speedily passed the Civil Rights Act which prohibited the discrimination of individuals based on sex, color or religion.  

Today we remember the man who not only changed history but taught us that darkness cannot drive out darkness and only light and positivity can do that.
