January 15 marks the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Mainstream American culture tends to have a narrow view of King’s work, limited primarily to his leadership in the Civil Rights movement. However, King’s vision was rooted in the desire for a beloved community in which not only were all people equal, but in which all violence, poverty and injustice were abolished — a vision that flowed from King’s deep faith in the life and teachings of Jesus. In the following slideshow, we introduce the breadth of King’s prophetic faith, by means of 15 memorable quotes.
