Saluting a Champion of Diversity – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


I believe it goes without saying that Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was a champion of diversity.

It also goes without saying that championing a cause is one thing; giving your life for it is another thing entirely.

Dr. King’s passion to ensure civil rights for all individuals regardless of race, color, or creed provides the platform and impetus for what we seek to do at The Swirl World. 

We celebrate diversity, and we advocate the right of every person to love whomever he or she chooses, regardless of the skin they’re in.

Dr. King wasn’t a Swirler, but I’d like to think he’d be ok with anyone who is.

Today, we salute him – and we Swirl on.
