22 Jan Celebrating Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Team data2insight is inspired by the extraordinary life of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will,” he wrote in 1963 from a jail cell in Birmingham, Ala. “Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection.”
It was a direct challenge to the white church as civil rights violence engulfed the South. White churches told Dr. King he was moving too fast, demanding too much.
In the nearly 60 years since, let us reflect on what has changed for the better and what has not. Let us recommit to work of birthing a multicultural and anti-racist nation.
