Martin Luther King Day

On January 18, 2015 Humanity in Action will organize a Martin Luther King Day in collaboration with De Balie. Since 1986 the United States has celebrated the birthday of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. with a public holiday. Dr. King spoke the legendary words, “I have a dream… that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” Has this dream been realized or is there still a lot of work to be done? Martin Luther King Day is a time when people take the time to reflect on their country and their society; can the Netherlands also take inspiration from this speech today?
