The Dream Lives On

Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated APRIL 4, 1968. Awarded the Nobel Prize in 1964, Congress set aside his birthday as a National Holiday. Rev.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., said August 28, 1963: “Now is the time to open the doors of opportunity to all of God’s children…“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.”
