"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. I have a dream today!”

Dr. Martin Luther King- August 28, 1963 


Today, we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday…and his Dream. 

Over 50 years ago, before hundreds of thousands of Americans jam-packed before the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, Dr. King implored everyone to set aside an individual’s appearance and rhetoric, and instead measure each person by their inner moral fiber.

His message remains as relevant now as it did a half century ago.
