Diversity should be a top priority of the sustainability movement | The Underground

In his last Christmas sermon before his assassination, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. proclaimed that peace on Earth is only achievable with a world perspective where nations and individuals are interdependent. King further stated, “it really boils down to this: that all life is interrelated…We are all caught in the inescapable network of mutuality tied into a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly.”

King believed the peace, environment, and civil rights movements embodied one struggle: a struggle to restructure “the very architecture of American society” subverting the rampant and interrelated racism, militarism, and excessive materialism.
