I’ve been up since 3AM reading words that chronicle the last few months of Martin Luther King’s Jr. life —
Before he was assassinated, he started to campaign about people in this country that were experiencing extreme poverty.
His agenda was to ensure that those on the margins of society were not forgotten.
King believed poverty was a Civil Rights issue, and so do I.
Every single day, I feel that same burning passion to ensure that this nation remembers the voiceless and invisible of our society.
In 10 Days, I’ll set out on another journey.
I’m literally walking from The Center For Civil & Human Rights to the Lorraine Motel (386 miles) to honor the 50th year of King’s passing, and to bring attention to an issue that he stood against—poverty.
I’m grateful for the historical partners we’ve had to endorse the #MAP18 campaign!
In the words of King,
“If you want to be important—wonderful. If you want to be recognized—wonderful. If you want to be great—wonderful. But recognize that he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. That’s a new definition of greatness.”
