Thank you to Rev. Ingraham and the committee that continues to put in the work behind the scenes to honor Dr. King’s legacy in Norwalk year after year.

We often hear Dr. King’s “Dream” speech or his stance on labor. I’d like to offer his stance on education. This is the quote we see: “We must remember that intelligence is not enough. Intelligence plus character—that is the goal of true education.” Below is the article from where the quote is lifted.
