BLACK HISTORY MONTH: Every Friday this month, we will have an inspirational quote from Martin Luther King Jr. to celebrate Black History Month.
Today’s quote is from Martin Luther King Jr’s 1963 book, Strength to Love:
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. The true neighbor will risk his position, his prestige, and even his life for the welfare of others.”
