In Honor

In honor of one of the greatest social justice educators….

May you find time in your day to reflect and consider some of his words:

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

An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.

In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people but the appalling silence of the good people.

As I looked through MLK quotes, the theme of ending silence was present. Yet all of these years later we still have silence, and folks’ voices are still not heard. I know many student affairs professionals out there who work to create equity, but in what areas are you remaining silent or creating silence? What are you doing to create change?
