Happy birthday, Mari! You are such a powerful leader and a wonderful human. I’m grateful to know you. 🖤
My heart goes out to #SecorieaTurner ’s family and school community. She should be here. We must shift the trajectory of our communities and of our entire World House. Let’s continue to strategize and organize, from local orgs and faith groups to legislative halls and activists.
Be sure to tune in TODAY. I will join @TIME at 1pm EST for the latest #TIME100Talks , also featuring: @DalaiLama @MichaelDTubbs @vanessa_vash @CoryBooker & #AngelinaJolie . Special performance by @elliegoulding . To register for the livestream:
If you’re unbothered or mildly bothered by the 1st knee, but outraged by the 2nd, then, in my father’s words, you’re “more devoted to order than to justice.” And more passionate about an anthem that supposedly symbolizes freedom than you are about a Black man’s freedom to live.
Don’t act like everyone loved my father. He was assassinated. A 1967 poll reflected that he was one of the most hated men in America. Most hated. Many who quote him now and evoke him to deter justice today would likely hate, and may already hate, the authentic King. #MLK .
