Today we honor Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., his life and his legacy as a man who was so much more than the quotable soundbites of “I Have a Dream.” He has not only impacted our Be the Bridge leaders as individuals, but also the work of Be the Bridge as we pursue justice for the collective.

We encourage you to take some time to listen to Dr. King’s speeches and sermons and read his writing—in their entirety and in context—for a fuller understanding of who he was and the America he envisioned.
