Streetsweeper

A Briefcase Original project

 
If it falls your lot to be a street sweeper...sweep streets so well that all the host of heaven and earth will have to pause and say, “Here lived a great street sweeper who swept his job well.” 
— Martin Luther King Jr.
 
 

Background

Most know Martin Luther King Jr's famous, "I have a Dream", speech. But, beyond the dream, Dr. King had some thoughts about how to approach everyday work and community.

Streetsweeper is a Briefcase Originals project inspired by Dr. King's, "The Three Dimensions of a Complete Life" speech delivered at New Covenant Baptist Church in 1967.

The project follows the lives of three real people who embody Dr. King's words. Streetsweeper explores how each person balances their work, community, and a devotion to a higher power.
