MLK Day 2024

With all our brothers and sisters in the United States, we mark today as Martin Luther King Jr. Day today. A man who needs no introduction has much to offer us today in our current culture and political climate in his commitment to non violent activism.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.

From Strength to Love, 1963

Celebrations have been taking place in the past week hosted by The King Center. Tune in now to their Beloved Community Commemorative Service, streaming live from their website.
