Dear SAU Community,
Monday, January 21 is an official holiday honoring the life work of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. King may best be known as a leader of the American Civil Rights Movement and recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize for his non-violent efforts to end segregation, but he also worked to raise public consciousness by starting dialogues on other salient issues of the time. For your viewing pleasure and personal edification, we’ve embedded video clips (scroll down) of Dr. King‘s famous I Have a Dream speech and a compilation of his comments relating to the role of the United States in Vietnam. We encourage you to consider these video clips of Dr. King and to take a few moments to think about the principles celebrated by this holiday and the enduring relevance of Dr. King’s message.
We want to hear from you!
How has Dr. King’s legacy impacted your life and/or education?
