MLK Day Post

I have beena bit out of pocket today and thus too busy to really bang out a good post about the man, mission and vision of Martin Luther King Jr.

I can say that I am learning a lot about the divisions in the civil rights movement as I have been doing some side-by-side reading of MLK and Malcolm X.  Both men had unique and difficult visions for the future.  I encourage you to do some reading of your own.

Otherwise, I will link you to a post from two years ago, enjoy.

I am glad that this year I was able to continue my MLK Day tadition in listening to these two speeches.

“I have A Dream” 

“Why I Am Opposed to the War in Vietnam”
