Martin Luther King Jr Day

As we gather today to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., it is important to reflect and remember the profound impact this influential leader had on our society and the civil rights movement. Dr. King’s legacy continues to serve as a guiding light, inspiring us to strive for justice, equality, and compassion in our own lives.

On this special day, we would like to take a moment to highlight the significance of Dr. King’s last sermon, delivered on February 4, 1968, titled, ‘The Drum Major Instinct.’ From the pulpit of Ebenezer Baptist Church, he shared powerful words that resonate with us even today. He stated, “If you want to be important—wonderful. If you want to be recognized—wonderful. If you want to be great—wonderful. But recognize that he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. That’s a new definition of greatness.”

These words encapsulate Dr. King’s belief that true greatness lies not in self-promotion, but in service to others. He challenged us to reject the conventional notions of greatness and instead urged us to embrace humility, compassion, and selflessness. It is this philosophy that continues to inspire us and guide our mission at the D’Andre D Lampkin Foundation.

As an organization dedicated to empowering underserved communities and advancing collaboration amongst community members, we strive to embody the principles that Dr. King so eloquently expressed in his final sermon. We recognize the need for compassionate leadership, selfless actions, and a commitment to the greater good. Each day, we work to make a positive impact and honor the legacy of Dr. King’s teachings.

On this meaningful day, let us remember and celebrate the life and achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Let us be reminded of his message of unity, justice, and equality, which still resonates to this day. Together, we can carry forward his vision and work towards a more fair and inclusive society.

Thank you for your unwavering support of the D’Andre D Lampkin Foundation. We are grateful to have you as a part of our community, as we continue to uphold the values championed by Dr. King.

Wishing you a day filled with reflection, inspiration, and renewed commitment to creating positive change.
