Two speeches show us our way

(Continued)

King, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, was assassinated in 1968, but his words live on. America celebrates Martin Luther King Day on Monday as a national holiday.

This Sunday, Dr. King’s speech will be recited when the Oneonta Branch of the NAACP and the city of Oneonta Commission on Community Relations and Human Rights commemorate the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington with a free event from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Elm Park United Methodist Church, at 401 Chestnut St. in Oneonta.

We urge everyone to attend to honor Dr. King’s memory … and remember those two speeches in 1963, both of which we forget at our peril.
