Fifty Years Past, Fifty Years Forward… Our Future Dreamers
Dr. King expressed a vision of a better world-a vision that was compelling enough to withstand challenges, discouragements and obstacles. Dr. King showed us that imagining an alternative to the way things are is foundation to creating a better world. In essence dream about a better world and shape a vision to follow.
