As we recognize the annual celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday, the IMAGES USA staff takes time to reflect on what the day and the man has meant to all of us and our lives. More than just a civil rights leader, Dr. King was a loving father and husband; like IMAGES USA’s CEO and founder Bob McNeil and many other IMAGES family members past and present, he was a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.; he was an icon for equality, hope and justice.
Below are reflections from IMAGES USA family members about what Dr. King and his legacy has meant for their lives:
I recollect his leadership. His ability to influence, inspire, encourage and train others to lead is an irremovable mark in history.
– Sadie Domineck, Account Supervisor
MLK is a symbol of social justice for me. The holiday is still important as it serves as a reminder of injustice around us. It also serves as a motivator to become a better activist and help to resolve those injustices. The MLK holiday is a great day to reflect and put a plan into action to better serve your community and help your fellow man.
