The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial opens in DC this week, a tribute to a man whose words moved so many. Dr. King’s effectiveness had much to do with his powers of oratory. While King had many words, sometimes, as we know, just a few words—six seems to work well —can make a big statement. And now The Washington Post and SMITH wonder how you can sum up Dr. King in just a half-dozen well–chosen words.
Here are few from Twitter, tagged #MLKin6:
