Celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Final Speech

Celebrating the final speech of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
April 19, 2018 at the Eliot Church in Boston, 6 pm,

The Mission of The Mountaintop Project

The mission is to reflect the creative vision articulated by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the day before his assassination.  The Mountaintop speech reflects a vision —  which is decidedly different from his “I Have A Dream” speech.  King’s vision creates a rich opportunity to advance the city of Boston, the nation and the world.

The Boston to the Mountain Top Project take the last words of Rev. Martin Luther King seriously.  They provide a framework for investing in a more hospitable culture, more vibrant social engagement, more defining strategies about improving our common wealth.  They achieve these efforts through:

  • Convening learning forums
  • Increasing Civic Literacy
  • Fostering Public Policy
  • Supporting Grassroots Organizing and Leadership Training
  • Engaging Youth

The Importance of the Last Words

Rev. Dr.  Martin Luther King Jr. was organizing in Memphis at the time of his assassination. As he continued to plan the Poor Peoples Campaign to occupy Washington, DC in the months ahead, King joined the fight for workers rights in Memphis.

His solidarity with the Memphis scavengers were central to his political and spiritual commitments.  They provide a blueprint for us today to stride toward freedom.
