Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” Report Card will honor 50th Anniversary of Assassinationby Alvin Plexico, Ph.D. January 10, 2018
“We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism.”
It’s just as true today as it was when Dr. King spoke these words in 1963. There are real people, real families, real communities suffering because of the apathy of many of our fellow citizens and the inability of those in power to make real change.
The report card is a small step to change that. It encourages people to learn more. Share more. Do more.
Readers are encouraged to share their thoughts about Dr. King’s dream at http://www.ihaveadreamreportcard.com/
The report card book is available on Amazon (search “I have a dream report card”).
All proceeds from the book will be donated to The National Civil Rights Museum.
