As our nation prepares to observe the fiftieth anniversary of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I have a dream” speech at the March on Washington (August 28, 2013), Christian Theological Seminary teamed up with SALT Project and local PBS affiliate, WFYI, to create a provocative new short film to help inspire communities across the country to ask the question: How far have we come on the journey to social justice and what must be done to achieve the dream King so eloquently articulated in 1963?
To be sure, King’s vision and passion captured a generation’s imagination, but we cannot do justice to his memory unless we recommit ourselves anew to that world he envisioned. We encourage you to download and show this powerful video to your congregation on Sunday, August 25, 2013 and to post it to your website. Share this video with your community and remember this preacher from the South who changed the world, and be challenged anew to see that “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
