As we celebrate the life, legacy and dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., today is a notable time to reflect on the work that still needs to be done for equality and civil rights issues.

The sport of football has illustrated how individuals of different races, religions and creeds can work together toward a common goal. The lessons and values learned from the Game can be applied to life.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame is honored to share the messages from the Enshrinement speeches that Hall of Famers have delivered through the years. LaDainian Tomlinson, Edgerrin James, Randy Moss, Champ Bailey and Warren Moon explained their personal hardships and hopes for a better society. These messages of unity, equality and elimination of prejudice need to continue to be heard to drive change.
