“This will be the day when we shall bring into full realization the dream of American democracy—a dream yet unfulfilled.... A dream of a nation where all our gifts and resources are held not for ourselves alone, but as instruments of service, for the rest of humanity.”

— Martin Luther King, Jr, 1961
