MLK on Unity

Martin Luther King Jr. / Civil Rights / Employment / Beers and Gordon P.A.On May 17, 1957, after President Eisenhower had ordered troops to Arkansas for the swift and deliberate integration of schools and the African nation of Ghana had finally declared its independence from the British crown, Martin Luther King Jr placed himself into the national consciousness. He spoke to a gathering of nearly 25,000 in Washington D.C., addressing all manner of civil rights from education to the voting ballot. And in that speech, he made the following comments on the need for unity:

Man through his scientific genius has been able to dwarf distance and place time in chains; he has been able to carve highways through the stratosphere. And so it is possible today to eat breakfast in New York City and dinner in Paris…

…Through our scientific genius we have made of the world a neighborhood; now through our moral and spiritual genius we must make of it a brotherhood. We are all involved in the single process. Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. We are all links in the great chain of humanity.
