I Have A Dream

Greetings, blog readers!

Today is a very important day for everyone on this earth. Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Dr. King was an American clergyman, activist and prominent leader in the African-American civil rights movement. He is best known for being an iconic figure in the advancement of civil rights in the United States and around the world, using nonviolent methods following the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi. King is often presented as a heroic leader in the history of modern American liberalism.

In honor of Dr. King (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) and his freedom movement, we bring you this amazing sweater designed by Mary Neal Meador from Mason Dixon Knitting Outside the Lines. Called “Margaret,” this sweater is particularly interesting as it’s designed to be a blank canvas for whatever the knitter wishes to say.

We particularly liked Suzanne from Maldon, MA’s version with Dr. King’s quote “Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.”

Beautiful, no?

In honor of this day we encourage you, our dear readers, to take a few minutes and listen to Dr. King’s famous and moving speech.
