The Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Baptist minister, and a hero of the faith. Like Moses, King had been to the mountaintop and had seen the Promised Land.

God called Dr. King to be a prophet to our nation. He taught us to live more fully the ways of God and to reject racism. He fasted and prayed for us. And without violence, he changed the entire world.

For this, he won the Nobel Peace Prize. And posthumously, the Presidential Medal of Freedom. And the Congressional Gold Medal.

What did we do to Martin Luther King? We murdered him.

Now, years later, the United Sates remembers the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. each year on January 20.

We invite you to absorb his message anew. We’ve collected these videos for you …
