One of King's most central legacies often lost in holiday remembrances is his stance against global poverty and his encouragement for all Americans to learn about and combat it.

Download the free 2-page inspirational flyer about Martin Luther King Jr. and what he fought for in this exact regard here:

Think about the global poverty statistics mentioned therein - comparing those in King's time - to those in the present and then pass it on! This would certainly be an excellent way at both honoring King's vision, and opening your own and others' eyes to the currently still dreadful state of humanity.

Can you take to heart the words King spoke just 4 days before he was gunned down? That's what this flyer will ask you. Take the King Challenge - in his own words - and see.
