Martin Luther King Jr. – Street Art from NY and Mongolia

Posted on January 16, 2012

Today we honor a great man, Martin Luther King Jr., whose words remind us to dig deep and find our better selves and to work toward economic justice, social justice, and equality and dignity for each person. His words and actions inspire people around the world as we celebrate his birthday; Here are two recent portraits of Dr. King – one in New York, and one from Mongolia.

All we say to America is, “Be true to what you said on paper.” If I lived in China or even Russia, or any totalitarian country, maybe I could understand some of these illegal injunctions. Maybe I could understand the denial of certain basic First Amendment privileges, because they hadn’t committed themselves to that over there. But somewhere I read of the freedom of assembly. Somewhere I read of the freedom of speech. Somewhere I read of the freedom of press. Somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the right to protest for right. And so just as I say, we aren’t going to let dogs or water hoses turn us around, we aren’t going to let any injunction turn us around. We are going on.

We need all of you.”

~ Martin Luther King Speech – “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop”
at the Mason Temple (Church of God in Christ Headquarters), Memphis, Tennessee, April 3, 1968
