Martin Luther King, Jr. “Weekend to Remember

And this will be the day
when all of God’s children,
black and white, Jews and Gentiles,
Protestants and Catholics,
will be able to join hands and sing
with new meaning –
‘Free at last!
Free at last!
Thank God Almighty,
we’re free at last!’”

 Final sentence from Dr. King’s address “The Future of Integration” given at Canoga Park High School Auditorium on Sunday, January 15, 1961
