Jan. 17, birth of Martin Luther King, Jr.

From the LPF website:

Martin Luther King quotes reflecting some of the breadth of Dr. King's thought.

Useful as a bulletin insert.

A true revolution of values will lay hands on the world order and say of war: “this way of settling differences is not just”.… A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual death.
Where Do We Go From Here

Now Online: Martin Luther King's Works -- talks, sermons, letters (including early drafts & mark-ups) etc. The Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change has opened an online digital archive of Dr. King's works.  http://www.mlkonline.net/
