Words of Inspiration from Martin Luther King

“Justice for black people will not flow into society merely from court decisions nor from fountains of political oratory…. White America must recognize that justice for black people cannot be achieved without radical changes in the structure of our society. The comfortable, the entrenched, the privileged cannot continue to tremble at the prospect of change in the status quo.” (from “A Testament of Hope,” the last piece he wrote for publication before his death)
