Today, we reflect on one of the most inspirational figures in American history. A man who inspired people of all walks of life, through not only his words and his dream, but also by his actions. The message he delivered 54 years ago helped to mobilize a movement that was instrumental in securing civil rights for American citizens, and that message continues to ring true around the world.

His powerful voice echoed throughout the land, unifying people of all cultures, without the power of today’s technology. Today, one person can inspire another, someone whom they’ve never met, from across the globe. In recent years, we’ve seen the power of social media harnessed in mobilizing movements internationally, as the citizens of the world continue to pursue freedom and justice for all.

He inspired many, and the best way to honor his legacy, is to inspire others and keep his dream alive.
