JANUARY 18, 2019

Throughout the year Hononegah Community High School recognizes the contributions of diverse people through announcements of Admirable Americans. For us, every month is African American History Month, and Women’s History Month, and Hispanic Heritage Month, and Asian Pacific Heritage Month, and so on. Today we honor Dr. Martin Luther King as an Admirable American. Dr. King helped organize the March on Washington, a peaceful political rally designed to shed light on the injustices African Americans continued to face across the country. The march culminated in King’s “I Have a Dream” speech. King employed spirited and masterful rhetoric in a powerful call for peace and equality. King envisioned a future in which “this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.'” Time magazine named King Man of the Year, and in 1964 he became the youngest person ever awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
