Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
(January 15, 1929-April 4, 1968)
"Today there is no longer a choice between violence and nonviolence. It is either nonviolence or nonexistence. I feel that we've got to look at this total thing anew and recognize that we must live together. That the whole world now it is one--not only geographically but it has to become one in terms of brotherly concern. Whether we live in America or Asia or Africa we are all tied in a single garment of destiny and whatever effects one directly, effects one indirectly."-- Nonviolence or Nonexistence
, from a 1967 interview
