MLK Day 2024

The Martin Luther King Jr. holiday was signed into law on November 2, 1983 by former President Ronald Reagan.

The Martin Luther King Jr. holiday would not be complete without taking some time to honor this great man. Here are some of our favorite quotes from the civil rights activist.

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

* “Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.”

* “The hottest place in hell is reserved for those who remain neutral in times of great moral conflict.”

* “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

* “So even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream.

Hope you had a happy MLK Day! What are you doing to make a difference? What would you like to do to have an impact? Let us know!
