Celebrating the Life of Dr. King

Dr. Martin Luther King will long be celebrated for leading the civil rights movement from 1954 until his death by assassination in 1968. Just days after his death, Congress passed the Civil Rights Act of 1968.  Dr. King's words inspired the masses then and his legacy lives on today.


The time is always right to do what is right.

Free at last, Free at last, Thank God almighty we are free at last.

In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?

Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

Morality cannot be legislated, but behavior can be regulated. Judicial decrees may not change the heart, but they can restrain the heartless.
