Today, we celebrate the extraordinary life and vision of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We encourage our friends, family and Fraters to spend time today learning and serving.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2021
Throughout the 1950s and 1960s, Dr. King's vision of peace and inclusivity changed our world for the better. He left a legacy that continues to inspire today. As we reflect on the progress made to date and an even brighter future, consider... How can you impact the world positively? How will you leave your mark?
For Dr. King, change was achieved through peaceful protest, education and understanding. It was not built on violence, dehumanizing others or through fear - but built upon our common humanity and goodwill for all. Similarly, we are called to exhibit love, charity, and esteem in our daily actions. As we honor Dr. King today, consider exploring the resources below.
TheKingCenter.org | The King Center is making a difference by preparing global citizens to create a more just, humane and peaceful world using Dr. King's nonviolent philosophy and methodology.
