Remembering MLK

As we remember MLK today, I invite you to check out this article which has quotes from his speech in 1967 where he addressed income inequality.

Today as Americans remember Martin Luther King Jr. many will focus on the vision King so eloquently illustrated in his “I Have a Dream” speech.  However, what is often forgotten is that MLK attempted to accomplish the dream many years after he spoke at the Lincoln Memorial in 1963.  The “I Have a Dream” speech was delivered on August 28, 1963.  Four years later, in 1967, MLK attempted to move the dream forward with his “Where Do We Go from Here?” speech.
