dr. martin luther king, jr. remembered

“Philanthropy is commendable, but it must not cause the philanthropist to overlook the economic injustice that makes philanthropy necessary.”                                                       – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. King was killed 43 years ago today, his life and work cut short by an assassin’s bullet in Memphis, Tennessee, where he had travelled in support of striking workers.

In today’s climate of ever-growing economic inequality, we continue to miss his leadership, and celebrate his legacy.
