44 Years Ago in Memphis And More

My favourite quote from Dr. King is:

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

The full speech is here.

We should not forget that 44 years ago Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis. He was only 39.

What we often don’t remember is that he won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964.
