Martin Luther King

Today the federal government and America’s president, among others, dedicated a National Memorial to Martin Luther King in the National Mall in Washington DC. He is the only non president to have receive such an honor. While ,for the most part, politically, Dr. King and I are not compatible. I have great respect for a man who sacrificed himself trying to lead our glorious race to a better place in the US and indeed the world. So in honor of his special day I will post my favorite Martin Luther King clip.

 

The MLK that’s never quoted.

“‎”The Negro will only be free when he reaches down to the inner depths of his own being and signs with the pen and ink of assertive manhood his own emancipation proclamation. Psychological freedom, a firm sense of self-esteem, is the most powerful weapon against the long night of physical slavery. No Lincolnian Emancipation Proclamation, no Johnsonian civil rights bill can totally bring this kind of freedom”

 Martin Luther King

The good Dr and I shared a favorite song and gospel artist in How I Got Over by  Mahalia Jackson. Listen to both they will deepen your life experience and help you along with your day.
