The 7th Annual GW SMHS Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Week Lecture Series

Advancing the Dream: Why We Can't Wait 

In the book Why We Can't Wait (1963), Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. explained why he opposed the gradualist approach to achieving equity and civil rights. Dr. King said, "This "Wait" has almost always meant "Never." We must come to see, with one of our distinguished jurists, that "justice too long delayed is justice denied."
