There could be no greater writing prompt on January 15th then leadership.  January 15th is the birthday of a great leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Much has been said and written about Dr. King and I am sure that anyone who reads this is aware of his famous speech “I have a Dream” that was delivered in Washington DC. Most people are not aware of a much more powerful speech that was delivered exactly one year prior to his assassination. This speech given at Riverside Church in New York showed a more radical side of Dr. King.
