Honoring Martin Luther King

Honoring Martin Luther KingToday we celebrate the life of trailblazing civil rights activist, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. As we continue to work toward his mission to become “a more perfect union”, his words about freedom and equality resonate with us.

So, in honoring Martin Luther King, we offer these soul-stirring quotes on hope and freedom.
