On the Monument to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.; Concord, North Carolina (Cabarrus County)

January 15, 1928 – April 4, 1968



“I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream.”


“The tough mind is sharp and penetrating, breaking through the crust of legends and myths and sifting the true from the false.”



“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.”


“There are dark moments in this struggle but I want to tell you that I’ve seen it over and over again that so often the darkest hour is that hour that appears before the dawn of a new fulfillment.”


“Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

“Life’s most persistent question is, what are you doing for others?”



“In the process of gaining our rightful place we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds.  Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.”
