Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., challenged the world to recognize that true liberty depends on our acceptance of equality. The nation is consistently moving closer to fulfilling America's promise of economic and social justice because we stand on the shoulders of civil rights leaders like Dr. King, Rosa Parks, Andrew Young, Daisy Bates, Julian Bond, Claudette Colvin and John Lewis.
“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”
