The most powerful leaders in history, including the prophets of religions, did not attempt to change the world before undergoing their own transformation. What we wish to see in the world begins with what we see in ourselves. Today, we remember Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who was an inspiring leader who had a seismic impact on race relations in the United States.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Baptist minister and social activist, who led the Civil Rights Movement in the United States from the mid-1950s until his assassination in 1968. He was a visionary leader who was deeply committed to achieving social justice through nonviolent means. Through his activism, he played a pivotal role in ending the legal segregation of African-American citizens in the South and other areas of the nation, as well as the creation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Dr. King received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, among several other honors. He continues to be remembered as one of the most lauded leaders in history.

Walter Hudson is a nationally known activist. Walter Hudson models himself after the most notable activist of all time, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Walter Hudson is the Founder and Chairman of the National Awareness Alliance. They stage protests around the country supporting the "Black Lives Matter" movement. The protests are peaceful. We encourage all that protest to be peaceful.
Today, let us honor Dr. King and those that follow in his footsteps. Although we have come a long way in the battle for civil rights, sadly, we still have a long way to go.
Tonight's show is dedicated to observing and honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a legend who stood and fought not just for racial equality, but also for ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT along with social justice. Listen as we share audio clips of speeches by Dr. King that "probably" are not as "popular" as the "I Have A Dream" speech or "I've Been to the Mountain Top."
Dr. King stood for not just non-violence and social justice, but also GROUP ECONOMICS and ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT within the Black Community. The best way for us to honor Dr. King and others who fought for the same thing, is by collectively sharpening our Financial Literacy knowledge, expanding our knowledge base and then POWER SHIFTING our $1.1 Trillion spending power back into Black businesses, churches and communities as we teach our youth to do the same and carry out the legacy of GROUP ECONOMICS in the spirit of Black Wall Street.

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial lies along the center line of leadership that extends from the Lincoln Memorial to the Jefferson Memorial on Washington's National Mall. At 30 feet in height, the sculpture of MLK on the "stone of hope" is 11 feet talller than the statues of Lincoln and Jefferson.
In honor of Dr. King's birthday, we will revisit our coverage of the dedication of his Memorial in 2011. Over a decade in the making, October 16, 2011 marked the official dedication of this historic Memorial in Washington, DC and the 16th anniversary of the Million Man March. However, the original dedication date was set for August 28, 201, the 48th anniversary of King's "I Have A Dream" speech. But, an earthquake in the mid-Atlantic and the untimely visit of Hurricane Irene forced a delay in the official ceremony. Nonetheless, World Footprints covered all of the dedication events from August through October and today's show shares interviews from celebrities and news makers who participated in the celebrations. Ambassador Andrew Young, Lalah Hathaway, Reverend Jesse Jackson, Rabbi Israel Dresner, and former Secretary of State Madeline Albright will offer their thoughts and memories about Dr. King.
From the official dedication we’ll share music and remarks on the National Mall from Archbishop Desmond TuTu, Stevie Wonder and America's first African-American President, Barak Obama. From our perspective, watching President Obama walk past the Inscription Wall at the MLK Memorial to the dedication stage to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was incredibly powerful.
In 1968, when Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated, many people struggled to give voice to the profound emotions of that moment in history. The Choral Arts Society of Washington sought to honor MLK in song, and on the first anniversary of his assassination, gave the premiere performance of a work it had commissioned in his honor: ONCE – In Memoriam Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The following year, Choral Arts joined with several local church choirs to present a concert in memory of Martin Luther King, Jr. and gave similar annual concerts through 1969.
Since the inception of the MLK national holiday in 1989, Choral Arts has produced and participated in Living the Dream...Singing the Dream: Celebrating the Legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. (formerly known as an Annual Choral Tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr.) at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts along with a host of participating artists and ensembles. The tributes began, in Artistic Director Emeritus Norman Scribner's words, "…to give musical and visual reality to the message that we are all brothers and sisters. As an avid music lover, Dr. King understood the tremendous force that music exerts upon the human will."
In 2004, Choral Arts began honoring individuals who embody the spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s message of nonviolent struggle for Civil Rights with the Annual Humanitarian Award. Each year the selected individual is honored at the celebratory concert.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is primarily known for his "I Have a Dream" speech and for being a nonviolent activist. We uncovered some little known facts about him and we discovered how many of his famous quotes apply to our current relationships with our spouses, co-workers, friends, etc. If Dr. King was alive, do you think he'd shake his head in disgust at the chaos (murders, bullying, police brutality, etc.) in our society or would he be understanding (it takes time to work these things out, etc)?

This show is a special tribute to the life and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. As our nation, celebrates and honors a man of courage, conviction, leadership, and faith with his own national holiday, we are observing the sacrifice and commitment of him on Monday, Januray 19, 2015. This is a profund accomplishment that our nation is giving such recognition to a man who was fighting for social justice and equality that sometimes was against the system of this country.
In Dr. King's short life of being born on January 15, 1929 and died on April 4, 1968, he only lived 39 years. However, in that relative short time he made a lasting impression not just in America, but around the world as he was influenced by the teachings of Jesus Christ and Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi "Mahatma Gandhi." During the 1950s-1960s, Dr. King stood up for the voiceless and the underrepresented minority groups in America with the Noviolent, Civil Rights Movement.
He is most known for his "I Have a Dream" speech, yet I believe that speech was more than a speech in Washington D.C. on August 28, 1963, it was a prophetic vision and declaration of what God has allowed him to see. This is just as the biblical character Moses from the Holy Bible going up Mt. Sinai to show him the promised land for the children of Israel.
Once again as we celebrate the selfless life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I ask what are you willing to fight for, what cause or group of people are you passionate about in making a difference. It does take a group of people to make a difference, but it takes one person to begin a movement in fighting for social justice, equality, peace, and unity.
