Freedom almost always comes at a price. The ability we have to do what we want, when we want, where we want and how we want has come at the expense of hard work, determination and the loss of hundreds of thousands of lives over history.
One person who gave his life – literally – to help everyone enjoy a better quality of life and secure the freedom that African Americans were often deprived of in the 1950s and 1960s is Martin Luther King, Jr.
His “I Have A Dream Speech” is one of the most revered and referred to speeches of not only the Human Rights movement, but of all time. He had a huge impact on the people of the United States and as such, was rewarded posthumously with a day all his own, Martin Luther King Day…which falls on today, January 16, 2012.
A simple Google search will tell you everything you need to know about Martin Luther King and what he did for America.
In this week’s Mojo, I wanted to share a lesser-known, but equally powerful speech that Martin Luther King, Jr. gave at Ebeneezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, GA, “Drum Major Instinct”. It was the last sermon he gave at the church where he encouraged the congregation to seek greatness, but do so through love and service.
It was held 5 years after the “Dream” speech, but it’s equally as amazing. I hope you enjoy it.
Here is the LINK to listen to the entire speech.
Have an amazing week!
