“Who would you like to interview if you could?”

A few staff members were asked the following question “Who would you like to interview if you could?”

I would have loved to meet Martin Luther King Jr.  He was a reverend and a leader, he fought for what was right and he knew God was always by his side. He had a dream for his people.

“I have a dream that one day little black boys and girls will be holding hands with little white boys and girls.” “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”—Martin Luther King, Jr.

If I could go back in time to meet someone who made great contributions and was of major influence it would be Maya Angelou.

After growing up in a troublesome household and dealing with abuse Maya Angelou used her difficult upbringing as fuel to achieve her success and pave the way for many others who didn’t have a voice. Overcoming her own person struggles and then still finding the way to try and help others is a truly respectable quality.

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” – Maya Angelou

Booker T. Washington, the educator and social activist. He believed that education was critical for the black community following emancipation and worked tirelessly at raising funds for schools in Alabama.

“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.” —Booker T. Washington
