Armenian-Americans Stand with African-Americans, Share in Dr. Martin Luther King’s Dream

Today, on the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s historic “I Have a Dream” speech on the Lincoln Memorial, Armenian-Americans across the United States join with fellow African-American in the struggle for universal human and civil rights, equality, freedom and justice. Armenian-Americans, descendants of the survivors of the first genocide of the twentieth century, stand with African-Americans and all Americans who seek to right injustice, end discrimination, and stop the persecution of minorities. To say that the vision of Dr. Martin Luther King has been achieved, that his dream has been realized, would not be fair to the millions who face the perils of man’s inhumanity to man. Fifty years later, Dr. King’s words and vision continue to inspire. The Armenian Assembly of America, together with the Armenian-American community, proudly stands by that vision with the hope that Dr. King’s dream will be an every day reality for all Americans.
