Celebrating the Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The Malmar Knowles Family Foundation celebrates the legacy of one of the greatest leaders of all time-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  Dr. King’s vision of unity among all races, religions, cultures and communities is a message that still rings true with urgency 54 years after his passing. Let the Kectil Generation be charged to help finish his legacy in countries throughout the world.


We take this moment to remind ourselves of some of his most memorable quotes.

“Not everyone can be famous, but everybody can be great because greatness is determined by service. You only need a heart full of grace and a soul generated by love.”

“One day we will learn that the heart can never be totally right if the head is totally wrong. Only through the bringing together of head and heart—intelligence and goodness—shall man rise to a fulfillment of his true nature.”

“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.”

“Don’t allow anybody to make you feel that you are nobody.”

“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of the creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men created equal.”…I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
