Recognizing Peace and Remembering the Peacemaker: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Please join us in remembering Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., whose life was taken forty years ago today. This letter was sent by Dr. King in recognition of Burford Boone's receiving the 1957 Pulitzer Prize "for his fearless and reasoned editorials in a community inflamed by a segregation issue, an outstanding example of his work being the editorial entitled, 'What a Price for Peace,' published on February 7,1956" in the Tuscaloosa News.
Dr. King's poignant personal note echoes his message and legacy as a champion of human rights, of justice and equality, and as an inspirational unifying force for Peace.
