On the eve of Martin Luther King Jr.’s 40th death anniversary, it is important to see how far we have achieved towards civil rights. . .and how far we have to go.
Here is MLK Jr.’s final speech, in it’s entirety. There are many parallels to today’s environmental movement. The green movement is young. We have achieved a lot. . .and we have much more work to do.
Here is an excerpt from Dr. King:
“. . .the world is all messed up. The nation is sick. Trouble is in the land; confusion all around. That’s a strange statement. But I know, somehow, that only when it is dark enough can you see the stars. And I see God working in this period of the twentieth century in a way that men, in some strange way, are responding. . .”
