Celebrating the Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Memorial Foundation, Incorporated, of Jacksonville, Florida, was established on January 30, 1989, to honor the memory and legacy of one of the most revered men of the 20th century. The legacy of Dr. King’s works are far-reaching and maintains relevance in the lives and hearts of all American citizens today and beyond, promoting a philosophy of peace, freedom, justice, brotherhood, equal opportunity using the platform of non-violent activism.
It is essential that we not marginalize the memory of Dr. King by anchoring him to the “I Have A Dream” speech. Dr. King was a champion of the poor, the jobless, the homeless, and the disenfranchised. He was, by his own admission, “a drum major for justice.”
