On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we celebrate an American hero who helped us believe in a dream.
For the past few years at LDS Living, we have focused on capturing the stories of Latter-day Saints from diverse backgrounds. We hoped to capture the ongoing restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ through the lives of Church members. Ultimately these members and their stories are the fulfillment of Dr. King’s dream that his children would one day live in a nation where they would “not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
In his famous 1963 speech, Dr. King said, “I have a dream that…the rough places will be made plain and the crooked places will be made straight. And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together. This is our hope.”
We echo that hope.
