Dr. Martin Luther King On Peace

Dr. King receives the Nobel Peace Prize for 1964, representing an international recognition of the struggle for civil rights by African-Americans

"Sooner or later all the people of the world will have to discover a way to live together in peace and thereby transform this pending cosmic elegy into a creative psalm of brotherhood. I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. This is why right temporarily defeated is stronger than evil triumphant."
