Inspirational “I Have A Dream” speech was radical for its time

“The time is always right to do what is right.”
—Martin Luther King Jr.

The civil rights leader’s name permeates throughout American culture over 58-years since his assassination and 63-years since delivering his ever-inspirational “I Have a Dream” speech. He left behind him a legacy motivating and inspiring continued work towards social justice, togetherness and perhaps, above all else to do what is morally right.

When learning about Dr. King one might be led to believe he was a saint, given his strong moral convictions and words of wisdom which inspired a nation, it would not seem far off. He took great following to the work of Jesus and Gandhi. However, in his day he was considered a true radical, as the social change he called for in addressing poverty, housing segregation and bank lending discrimination was just a dream during his time.
