"People like Dr. King and Malcolm X and everybody who fought for civil rights for African American throughout history have given me this opportunity." @thebigticket205 talks about #BlackHistoryMonth and what it means to him 🔊⬆️
'He wore the shoes of Dr. King.' | Rev. Louis Coleman's commitment to fighting for social justice
There are a lot of problems here which I analyse in the link below. Many were created by the reforms set by the now Baron King of Lothbury and Dr. Martin Weale. They should be questioned. ( 3/3)
If anyone had a right to question whether our democracy was worth redeeming, it was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Because in the face of billy clubs and lynchings, poll taxes and literacy tests, he never gave in to violence, never waved a traitorous flag or gave up on our country.
“Call it democracy, or call it democratic socialism, but there must be a better distribution of wealth within this country for all of God's children.” — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
An ignorant question leads Dr. King to offer a strong lesson in black history in two minutes flat. I can tell that he’s slightly irritated, but also determined to break it ALL the way down. Which he does brilliantly. A king. #MLK90
Every so often, I re-read Dr. King’s Letter from a Birmingham Jail. While some of the injustices may have changed, his poetic brilliance, moral clarity, and tests of conscience still reverberate today. Take a moment to reflect on his righteous call:
Dr. King was 26 when the Montgomery bus boycott began. He started small, rallying others who believed their efforts mattered, pressing on through challenges and doubts to change our world for the better. A permanent inspiration for the rest of us to keep pushing towards justice.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr was murdered by white supremacy. That’s it. That’s the tweet.
