Today, we honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. An activist. A revolutionary. A hero. A man with a dream. ⭐️
Many of us are aware of his goals to generate social equality in America. He wanted to confront injustices faced by people of color through the use of peaceful protests and riveting speeches. He understood that by integrating our communities people of color may finally be provided with equal opportunities and compassion.
You may have learned of the March on Selma or bus boycott in Montgomery but did you also know that Dr. King took part in creating “The Freedom Budget for All Americans”? King spoke against economic injustices as well! He believed that there should have been a redistribution of wealth so that everybody could have an equal chance to live a good life. That meant education, health care, jobs, and housing are all the basic things that everybody should receive; whether they’re in the same class or not. He spoke about there being two different America’s: those with a surplus of resources and those with extremely limited access to resources. Income inequality has hindered this country for decades and in an economically advanced society these aren’t issues that we should ignore. In 1968 or now.
We commend Dr. Martin Luther King for his bravery, radiance, and humility. He was trailblazer in his time and an icon for millenniums to come. Forever remembered and revered. #RIPMLK #MLKDAY #ThinkSmartDreamBig #EAC #EquityApparelCo
