MLK Writing & Poetry Competition

Dr. King’s dream of a world of peace and dignity for all may seem out of our grasp.

But many American citizens young and old have taken King's message to heart and worked towards equality and justice for all citizens.

Our elected officials reflect a broader range of backgrounds and beliefs and our society is steadily moving towards acceptance and tolerance.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
