Martin Luther King Luncheon
The African American Community Service Agency 36th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Luncheon Presents
In Remembrance of Mrs. Coretta Scott King.
Remembering the Queen Behind The King: Is Education Fulfilling its Purpose on the Dream
"I often wonder whether or not education is fulfilling its purpose. A great majority of the so-called education people do not think logically and scientifically. Even the press, the classroom, the platform, and the pulpit in many instances do not give us objective and unbiased truths. To save man from the morass of propaganda, in my opinion, is one of the chief aims of education. Education must enable one to sift and weigh evidence, to discern the true from the false, the real from the unreal, and the facts from fiction." - Coretta Scott King, The Words of Martin Luther King, Jr.
