Remembering a Dreamer: Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968)

The New York campuses of Nyack College and Alliance Theological seminary join the nation and the world remembering the life of slain civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on the day of his birth, January 15. His words from countless platforms and pulpits ring true still.

“I say to you today, my friends, though, even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow,

I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up, live out the true meaning of its creed:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.”

 

Nyack’s Manhattan and Rockland County campuses will be closed on Monday, January 20 in observance of the federal holiday.

The dream lives on.
