“Just past noon on January 15, 1929, a son was born to the Reverend and Mrs. Martin Luther King, Sr., in an upstairs bedroom of 501 Auburn Avenue in Atlanta, Georgia.  It was in these surroundings of home, church {Ebenezer Baptist Church}, and neighborhood {sweet Auburn} that “M.L.” experienced family and Christian love, segregation and in the days to come “Jim Crow” laws, diligence and tolerance.” ~ NPS Gov

Someone asked me if I thought Martin Luther King, Jr., was a champ.

I said, “Yes because he wasn’t afraid to speak; he wasn’t afraid to stand, he knew his destiny, yet, he did all that he did without violence and that’s why I believe God still honors Dr. King’s legacy this many years after his death.”

It is with great honor that I post the video of Martin Luther Kings famous speech, “I have a dream.”
