7 IG Tributes to MLK That Honor His Legacy

54 years ago, Martin Luther King Jr. gave a speech (one of many) that changed the world in ways he couldn’t possibly have predicted: now, half a century later, “I Have a Dream” is just as relevant as ever, and it’s his persistence, integrity, and mission that we pay tribute to now, today and every day. Especially appropriate in our current political climate, MLK’s message of peace, love, and equality, continues to ring true.

Last year we remembered the King for his fight for democratic socialism; this year, we’re raising a glass on Instagram, because #2017. Peep the full roundup below. Cheers to you, MLK! May we never forget your passion or your politics.
