A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on america, birth, brothers, christ, daughters, freedom, heart, hope, inspiration, loyalty, sons, spirit, and work

America experiences a new birth of freedom in her sons and daughters; she incarnates the spirit of her martyred chief. Their loyalty is repledged; their devotion renewed to the work He left unfinished. My heart throbs anew in the hope that inspired by the example of Lincoln, imbued with the spirit of Christ, they will cast down the last barrier to perfect freedom. And I with my brother of blackest hue possessing at last my rightful heritage and holding my head erect, may stand beside the Saxon - a Negro - and yet a man!

Martin Luther King Jr (1929 - 1968)
