Words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Notable Black American Men. Gale Research, 1998:
"At the age of 26, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. took up the leadership role that would fill the rest of his life. He furthered the stubborn determination of black Americans to break down the limits of a racist society. His strategy of nonviolent protest brought passage of far-reaching federal legislation that undermined southern efforts to enforce segregation through local laws. His vision of a just and equal society where race would be transcended fired the imagination of many Americans."
Contemporary Authors Online. The Gale Group, 2001:
"We've got some difficult days ahead," Civil Rights activist Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., told a crowd gathered at Memphis's Clayborn Temple on April 3, 1968, in a speech now collected in The Words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. "But it really doesn't matter to me now," he continued, "because I've been to the mountaintop. . . .And I've seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the promised land."
