Washington, D.C. – When the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., shared his dream with the world atop the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, he gave mighty voice to our founding ideals. Few could have imagined that nearly half a century later, his iconic profile would forever be memorialized in stone, standing tall and gazing outward, not far from where he stirred our collective conscience to action.
In summoning a generation to recognize the universal threat of injustice anywhere, Dr. King’s example has proven that those who love their country can change it.
A foot soldier for justice and a giant of the Civil Rights Movement, Dr. King lifted the quiet hopes of our Nation with the powers of his voice and pen.

Clarksville, TN – Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan shares this message in celebration of the birth of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.:
Around this national holiday, as a community, we pause to reflect on the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. King had a special insight and ability to cut to the heart of the matter, and many of the words he spoke more than four decades ago ring true today.
Clarksville, TN – We honor the life of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy of fighting for racial equality, human rights and economic justice on this day. The American Dream and that people of every race, religion and creed should have the opportunity to share in it, is what Dr. King believed deeply.
In less than 13 years of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s leadership of the modern American Civil Rights Movement, from December, 1955 until April 4th, 1968, African Americans achieved more genuine progress toward racial equality in America than the previous 350 years had produced.
