MLK on the pressing issue of his time—and ours, nearly 50 years on.
There is no deficit in human resources; the deficit is in human will. The well-off and the secure have too often become indifferent and oblivious to the poverty and deprivation in their midst. The poor in our countries have been shut out of our minds, and driven from the mainstream of our societies, because we have allowed them to become invisible.
—Nobel Lecture, December 11, 1964
