50 Years: UPW Remembers Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

2018 marks 50 years since the passing of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. In honor of his memory, we have posted his Nobel lecture, and a link to his acceptance speech for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. We have also included a link to a video from the MLK Parade, UPW participated in on January 15, 2018. In his Nobel lecture, MLK said, "Every man lives in two realms, the internal and the external. The internal is that realm of spiritual ends expressed in art, literature, morals, and religion. The external is that complex of devices, techniques, mechanisms, and instrumentalities by means of which we live. Our problem today is that we have allowed the internal to become lost in the external. ...This problem of spiritual and moral lag, which constitutes modern man's chief dilemma, expresses itself in three larger problems which grow out of man's ethical infantilism. Each of these problems, while appearing to be separate and isolated, is inextricably bound to the other. I refer to racial injustice, poverty, and war." Please read on.
