During his lifetime, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. worked tirelessly for his vision of a nation of freedom and equality. He inspired people to fight against injustice of all kinds, once saying: "Life's persistent and most urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'" Dr. King valued strong communities, the empowerment of individuals, and striving for common goals.
