A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches of Martin Luther King, Jr. | Martin Luther King

"We've got some difficult days ahead," civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Jr., told a crowd gathered at Memphis's Clayborn Temple on April 3, 1968. "But it really doesn't matter to me now because I've been to the mountaintop. . . . And I've seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the promised land." These prohetic words, uttered the day before his assassination, challenged those he left behind to see that his "promised land" of racial equality became a reality; a reality to which King devoted the last twelve years of his life. These words and other are commemorated here in the only major one-volume collection of this seminal twentieth-century American prophet's writings, speeches, interviews, and autobiographical reflections. A Testament of Hope contains Martin Luther King, Jr.'s essential thoughts on nonviolence, social policy, integration, black nationalism, the ethics of love and hope, and more.

1. Martin Luther King, Jr. - Such a gorgeous, lyrical writing style ❤️
2. How do you continue to maintain hope when so often faced with the hopeless?
3. I‘m too scared to count 😱

ljuliel What a perfect dinner guest, and what an honor it‘d be to meet him. I‘m glad I was alive ( although a kid) when he was here as such an inspiration. 1mo

“A genuine revolution of values means in the final analysis that our loyalties must become ecumenical rather than sectional. Every nation must now develop an overriding loyalty to mankind as a whole in order to preserve the best in their individual societies.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, “Beyond Vietnam” speech #MLKday

So important to remember this quote from the great man. One of my heroes, along with Nelson Mandela. 😍😍😍

"We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies." -Martin Luther King Jr.

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”

We need some love right now. The President's hateful speech this afternoon is just the dark that needs driving out.
