His Dream Lives On

His Dream Lives On

They said one to another, behold, here cometh the dreamer.
Let's us slay him and we shall see what will become of his dreams.
- Genesis 37: 19-20

Today is a day we all sing
In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King

Wherever people fight to be free
His name is remembered with dignity

When black people weren't being treated right
He stood strong to lead the fight

He fought with love not guns or darts
He changed peoples' minds and their hearts

But some people didn't like his words
He was taken away to a better world

Yet his dream lives on that all can be free
When we knock down walls between you and me

Dr. Martin Luther King's life did not last
But his dream and his spirit are free at last


Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 04, 1968) was
an American Baptist Minister, Activist, Humanitarian, and Leader
in the African-American Civil Rights Movement.

Dr. King became a civil rights activist early in his career and he led
the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott and helped found the Southern
Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) in 1957, serving as its first
President.

Dr. King also helped to organize the 1963 March on Washington,
where he delivered his famous, "I Have a Dream" speech and he
established his reputation as one of the greatest Orators in
American history.

On October 14, 1964, Dr. King received the Nobel Peace Prize
for combating racial inequality through nonviolence.

In 1965, he helped to organize the Selma to Montgomery marches,
and the following year he and SCLC took the movement north to
Chicago to work on segregated housing.

In the final years of his life, Dr. King expanded his focus to include
poverty, as well as speaking out against the Vietnam War, with a
1967 speech which was entitled, "Beyond Vietnam".

In 1968, Dr. King was planning a national occupation of Washington,
D.C., to be called the, "Poor People's Campaign" when he was,
"Assassinated" on April 04, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee.
