CNN: Here are the Martin Luther King Jr. words that inspire today’s social justice leaders

Nihad Awad – Awad is the national executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. He chose a quote from Dr. King’s book “A Gift of Love: Sermons from Strength to Love and Other Preachings.”Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

Why did Awad pick those words?

He said the quote speaks to the “five years of indoctrination and lies by (President) Donald Trump and his enablers created a poisonous environment in which millions of Americans believe in falsehoods and conspiracy theories that make our society and the world less stable and less peaceful.”
