Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.: Active Resistance

As we have celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday this week, let us also celebrate his legacy of active resistance.

“The surprising success of that effort revealed that King’s nonviolence was, above all, a practical technique. King called it active resistance, in contrast to the more familiar term, “passive resistance,” which he said “gives the false impression that this is a do-nothing method.”

We can best honor his legacy by continuing to struggle for justice.
