Do You Believe That Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Dream Came True?
Has the racial injustice in our country really disappeared?
-The Betty Editors
“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
On August 28, 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led the March on Washington where he delivered one of the most iconic speeches in American history: “I Have a Dream.”
The powerful and heartbreaking speech was a major step for racial equality and gave all people, not just African Americans, a sense of hope.
“Let freedom ring. And when this happens, and when we allow freedom ring—when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children—black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics—will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!”
As we celebrate Martin Luther King Day this year on January 17, we have a question for our fellow Bettys: Do you believe that MLK’s dream has indeed come true?
We would really love to hear your thoughts!
