Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a man of great character and conviction, and he became a hero for Dorothy.
Dorothy Dandridge is pictured with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at a Freedom Rally at Los Angeles ’s Wrigley Field on May 26, 1963. A crowd of more than 35,000 people gathered to hear him speak. “This is the largest and most enthusiastic civil rights rally in the history of this nation,” Dr. King told the crowd.
“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality.”-Dr.Martin Luther King, Jr.
Happy #MLK Day!
