Ozara Ode’: “Dr. King’s vision manifests through my ability to dream live and inspire others. This boldness allows me to be bold. This fearlessness during a time when you could be beaten in broad daylight, just for being black, leaves me fearless.”

Marvin Jones: “Dr. King’s vision and actions inspired me to graduate from Columbia College, spend 32 years at AT&T and work with my community and family, showing them how to cook without salt.”
