"Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Guided by Dr. King’s work for nonviolent social change, MLK VOICE 4 YOUTH is an opportunity for Delaware high school students to creatively speak “about things that matter.”
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was best known for advancing civil rights through nonviolence and civil disobedience, but Dr. King was passionate about many causes. Throughout his life he gave more than 2,500 speeches, wrote five books, and delivered up to 450 speeches annually; yet he is most defined by one speech and one letter. In 2020, the fifth year of MLK VOICE 4 YOUTH, contestants are asked to focus and reference Dr. King’s lesser-known speeches, which in addition to civil rights addressed, education, economic justice, and an end to global conflict.
