Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Was A Vocal Advocate For Love And Peace In Harlem And Beyond

February 6, 2024

At the moment above, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., his extraordinary wife, Coretta Scott King, and others, stood resilient in front of Harlem Hospital after his recovery.

This image serves as a poignant reminder of a remarkable chapter in Dr. King’s life—his encounter with adversity when Izola Ware Curry tried to assassinate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., in Harlem in 1958.

Reflecting on love, hate, and the persistence of evil, Dr. King eloquently expressed,

“I am convinced that love is the most durable power in the world. It is not an expression of impractical idealism but of practical realism.”


His words transcend utopian dreams, emphasizing that love is necessary for our civilization’s survival.

To retaliate with hate only fuels the flames of evil, requiring someone with the wisdom and faith to break the cycle through love.

As we step into a new year, Dr. King’s wisdom resonates amidst ongoing conflicts—the Ukrainian and Russian War, and more recently.
