Dispatch 53: In Memoriam - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Fifty years ago today we lost a human being who represented our better angels, who demanded that all Americans live up to the values enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, who promoted the use of non-violent action to build awareness and action. 

The video clip presented here is an abbreviated version of Dr. King's "Letter from a Birmingham Jail". I urge you to view it, to really hear it, and to reflect on the life not only of Dr. King but of the countless individuals who have given their lives to advance the cause of civil rights in these United States of America. In your reflection, consider thinking about how you are advancing the work of creating a more just, humane, and sustainable world.
