Martin Luther King, Jr. at UCLA

Every year on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Paul and I listen to his words and remember his incredible legacy of peace and justice. The other day on NPR I heard about a new recording of an MLK, Jr. speech that was recently discovered in a UCLA storage room. See the video above to hear the speech and read more about finding this long-lost speech on the PBS Newshour website here.

I look forward to introducing Brook to MLK, Jr.’s work and words starting with this speech. This year, his words resonate even more profoundly in light of Ferguson and Eric Garner. In a year full of bad news – a recent piece of good news – the American Dialect Society decided on the Word of the Year: #blacklivesmatter. Read more about the process in the NYTimes here.

Peace, Mari
