Martin Luther King, Jr. said: “We will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.”
From his first sermon at the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama to his assassination at age 39 in Memphis, Tennessee, Martin Luther King Jr. stood up for truth, for justice, and for righteousness.
In August 1963 it’s estimated over 250,000 people gathered in the nation’s capital for the March on Washington in support of civil rights. King often quoted Scripture in his speeches and in his now iconic speech, he quoted from Isaiah 40:4-5:
“I have a dream that one day every valley should be exalted. . . .and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it. . .”
