Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by Xánath Caraza

 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

El Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr. es honrado en enero de cada año. Este 2022 lo recordamos hoy, lunes 17 de enero.  Comparto con los lectores de La Bloga un par de libros que escribió, entre otros tantos, más dos libros para niños que lo celebran y el enlace donde nuestros lectores pueden leer más sobre su vida, su visión y su trabajo con la comunidad.  Ayer y hoy el mensaje de Martin Luther King sigue vigente.

“At the age of thirty-five, Martin Luther King, Jr., was the youngest man to have received the Nobel Peace Prize. When notified of his selection, he announced that he would turn over the prize money of $54,123 to the furtherance of the civil rights movement.

On the evening of April 4, 1968, while standing on the balcony of his motel room in Memphis, Tennessee, where he was to lead a protest march in sympathy with striking garbage workers of that city, he was assassinated.”

(From Nobel Lectures, Peace 1951–1970, Editor Frederick W. Haberman, Elsevier Publishing Company, Amsterdam, 1972)


Where Do We Go from Here: Chaos or Community by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


“In 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., isolated himself from the demands of the civil rights movement, rented a house in Jamaica with no telephone, and labored over his final manuscript. In this prophetic work, which has been unavailable for more than ten years, he lays out his thoughts, plans, and dreams for America's future, including the need for better jobs, higher wages, decent housing, and quality education. With a universal message of hope that continues to resonate, King demanded an end to global suffering, asserting that humankind-for the first time-has the resources and technology to eradicate poverty.” (
