TRIBUTES

A Commitment to Nonviolence

What drove King to speak out against the Vietnam War — and incur the fury of President Johnson

 

Chris Gardner, AARP Ambassador

"Passages in this speech still shape the lives and destinies of people everywhere. This is because the dream exhorts us to be our best."

 

Lorraine Cortés-Vázquez, Executive VP, AARP

"To me, King's legacy transcends that of a tribute or memorial. His likeness may be in stone but his message lives in our social DNA."
