Dear Commons Community,
Today, we remember with affection and gratitude, the contribution of Martin Luther King, Jr. to our country. His messages of peace, racial understanding, and caring for children in poverty are as important today as five decades ago.
Larry Shore, our colleague at Hunter College, was good enough this morning to make available a digital copy of a speech, Dr. King gave at Hunter College in 1965. Read it out loud and you will feel his compassion, energy, and wisdom.
