On January 16th, Millard West High School honors the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. King stood up for injustice and led the Civil Rights movement. The youngest Nobel Prize winner became famous for his address “I Have a Dream,” and his civil disobedience essay “Letter from a Birmingham Jail.” King believed that “darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.” He also wanted people to “commit to yourself to the noble struggle for equal rights. You will make a better person of yourself, a greater nation of your country, and a finer world to live in.” School will not be held on this day for students. Please take this time to remember this great leader.
