A core value of the John Maxwell Team is our commitment to inclusion and diversity. Today we have over 21,000 members spanning over 160 countries, and while we celebrate this incredible feat, we know it hasn’t come without a price.
It’s been said that if something is worth attaining, it’s worth fighting for. Today, we join hands and hearts with millions across the United States and the world in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who in his life and death embodied these ideals of inclusion and diversity.
“I Have A Dream” is quite possibly the most famous speech in history — it is certainly the most famous in our lifetime. Yet it is more than just a famous speech, it’s a vision for how people all over world should live.
At a recent International Maxwell Certification Event, one of our members, Stephon Ferguson, paid an incredible tribute to Dr. King. Stephon painstakingly studied Dr. King’s speech for years, modeling the delivery and pace down to the very last inflection.
He performed “I Have A Dream” for all those in attendance, and it was absolutely riveting. Stephon is the only person licensed by the King family and hired by the US National Parks service to give this rendition of Dr. King’s speech.
We’re honored to share this with you today.
Here at the John Maxwell Team, our connection goes beyond just a rendition of “I Have A Dream” — for the last 20 years I've mentored Bernice King (Dr. King’s youngest daughter).
About 15 years ago, I was privileged to speak at Ebenezer Baptist Church on Dr. King’s birthday, and after the event I led some of our very own members to a surprise visit with Coretta Scott King and Bernice King. When told about the John Maxwell Team, Bernice said, “John, I want to be a member.”
We’re privileged to say that Bernice King is a founding member of the John Maxwell Team, and we continually strive to embody the ideals passed onto all of us by her father.
Please enjoy this incredible presentation, and join with us in celebrating the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his incredible legacy.
