Dr. King, had he lived, would have been ninety two years old on the January 15, 2021. It has a special significance to me for two reasons. One – we were born the same year 1929. Secondly because I spent over half my life helping to perpetuate his memory and all the outstanding leadership he displayed during the Civil Rights Movement.
Dr. King spoke fluently to the conditions of the day, and it was Faith that was the bedrock of all his achievements and actions.
He would be so disappointed to witness the threat against African Americans today, as we are at the forefront of a divided country that once again, is struggling to live up to it’s Declaration ” That all men are created equal.”
In these times all of us that are concerned about the future of America and where we go from here. We must keep that Faith, the same Faith that Dr. King depended on, that kept him going when times were tough. We need that Faith now, that we are challenged by hardships that seem to be coming from all directions. .
