This portrait by Benedict J. Fernandez from the @museumofcityny
collection caught Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. amidst the crowd of supporters outside the #UnitedNations
just before he gave his anti-war speech on April 15, 1967.
Dr. King was a visionary civil rights leader and a recipient of the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize. His legacy continues in many ways, including in the #GlobalGoals
for Sustainable Development, where reduced inequalities, peace and justice are key to our vision for a better world.
All of us can stand up against racial prejudice and intolerant attitudes. Be a human rights champion and #FightRacism
on Monday's #MartinLutherKing
Day and every day.
