Reflecting on MLK’s legacy through the lens of weather and climate

Recommended Posts


Dr. King’s Dream is tangible for me.


Martin Luther King, Jr. stated in 1963:


“I have a dream that one day little black boys and girls will be holding hands with little white boys and girls.â€


He uttered this speech at a time when the American Meteorological Society (AMS) likely had only a handful of African American members. Over 50 years later, one of those “little black†boys grew up to preside over this esteemed organization with contributions from all races, genders, and cultures. I am the second African American to serve as AMS President. My mentor and recent National Medal of Science recipient and pioneering NCAR scientist, Dr. Warren Washington, was the first.
