MLK Quote: 100% Real and Raw

posted by drew

05.04.11

"The black revolution is much more than a struggle for the rights of Negroes. It is, rather, forcing America to face all its interrelated flaws: racism, poverty, militarism, and materialism. It is exposing evils that are rooted deeply in the whole structure of our society. It reveals systematic rather than superficial flaws, and it suggests that radical reconstruction of society itself is the real issue to be faced."

--Martin Luther King Jr. (1967)

what people are saying about drew

"Drew is one of my heroes. No matter how many times I present the Awakening The Dreamer symposium, I am always moved by Drew and I love all his other poems on the site. All of ATD is deeply moving to me and Drew's words are, well, I don't have the words to describe what they mean to me and so many more. We are so fortunate to have him!!"
