Reading Matters: “Where Do We Go From Here” and Other Books by Dr. King

In the month of January, we pause to celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and others who were a part of the Civil Rights Movement.  Unfortunately after we read the I Have a Dreamspeech from the March on Washington in 1963, we cease to study King and his philosophy.  Dr. King in his book: Where Do We Go From Here spoke on racism: “If Western civilization does not now respond constructively to the challenge to banish racism, some future historian will have to say that a great civilization died because it lacked the soul and commitment to make justice a reality for all men.”
