Dr. Martin Luther King described the most serious threat to American society. In his words, "We must rapidly begin the shift from a thing-oriented society to a person-oriented society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights, are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, extreme materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered." More than 40 years later, the United States still faces these three existential challenges to our values as a nation. The City of Cambridge will honor and remember Dr. Martin Luther King and his legacy as we gather at St. Peter's Episcopal Church to hear Dr. King’s words calling for peace, justice and transformation,along with brief remarks by Pete Davis, a Harvard student who participated in a reenactment of the 1961 Freedom Rides in connection with the recent PBS film.
