Fugitive Watch honors Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2018 by featuring his moving and thought-provoking “Street Sweeper” speech. This is a short quote from his speech. We highly recommend you take a few minutes to listen to the entire speech on the YouTube video below.
“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michaelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”
