Martin Luther King Jr. Day highlights an opportunity for us to reflect on our community, our hopes and dreams, and our path to a better future.
The Reverend King inspires us to not only pursue our dreams and goals, but also to fight against injustice and social inequity. He challenges us to become agitators.
In his Letter from a Birmingham Jail, Dr. King talks about his desire to foster tension because the community has become complacent. He is referenced as an “outside agitator.”
