Known as an Icon for Democracy, Martin Luther King, Jr. took on many roles, peacefully.
As an American Baptist minister, activist, humanitarian, and leader in civil rights, King was a true “Word Warrior.” He championed non-violent civil disobedience to create monumental change often calling upon his Christian beliefs in leading a peaceful uprising against racial inequality.
And so, I believe, the best way to honor this “Word Warrior” today is to revisit some of his most powerful quotes. Nobody said it better. Happy Birthday, Dr. King. May you rest in peace.
