Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.
We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.

The article linked below draws a direct connection between Dr. King's work and the struggles of today, particularly Black Lives Matter. But it makes as I see it a distinction without a difference when speaking of the "peace and love" King as distinct from and inferior to the "radical" King. Love and forgiveness is a pretty radical concept. So is nonviolent resistance. All the boycotts and protests and hard, physical work in the world can't bring about social justice without the spirit of love, forgiveness, peace and nonviolence. As we move forward into what bids fair to be one of the most unsettled, vicious and divisive periods in American history, let us embrace both parts of Dr. King's legacy.
