President Obama in his speech three years ago after being inaugurated summarized what Martin Luther King was all about.
:: giving something back to your community
:: giving service
:: justice for all
:: equality for all
Martin Luther King’s own words were that he wished no individual would be “judged by the color of their skin but the content of their character”.
In remembrance of this Man of Service who paved the way for generations of non violent activist and leaders and was a catalyst to the chain of events leading to Nelson Mandela non-violent protest against apartheid; up to the inauguration of our First Black President of USA and even his visit to Brooklyn in 2013 – This week we will look at the sequence of events throughout history that caused significant changes in our lives and continue to do so. But before we do, there are a sequence of events happening right here in Brooklyn in celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. that we can be a part of.
