If you can't see this email, click here


On April 5, 1968, the New York Times described three ways people saw Martin Luther King Jr. in his obituary. "To many million of American Negroes," wrote Murray Schumach," the civil rights leader was "the prophet of their crusade for racial equality." For millions of white Americans, he was a "bridge of communication between races." And for the world, Dr. King was the "winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, a man with access to the White House and the Vatican; a veritable hero in the African states that were just emerging from colonialism." Join us on Martin Luther King Day to honor a hero who brought different people together with his dream for equality.
