His name needs no introduction, and his work will never be forgotten. As a young black man, I have often struggled to find peace in the way the world looks and treats me because of being black. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. has always been one of the master teachers that have helped me understand and embrace how to be compassionate in light of hate and prejudice. How to hold my head up high in loving confidence without being brought down with the hatred of others. His wisdom and teachings are immensely profound, and his contribution to human rights, especially black people will never be forgotten.
