Martin Luther King 40 years on Keep moving forward


Marian Wright Edelman
 
"I first heard and was inspired by Dr. King in 1960, when he spoke at my alma mater, Spelman College, in Sisters Chapel. He told us to always keep moving: "If you cannot fly, drive; if you cannot drive, run; if you cannot run, walk; if you cannot walk, crawl.  But keep moving.  Keep moving forward."  And fight with all our might those who seek to move us backwards. We must keep these words in mind to continue the fight to fulfill Dr. King’s vision of a new world and beloved community for all our children."
