Many say this holiday is one for remembering. Remember MLK, the struggle for Civil Rights, the inequalities and injustices that were battled against. But I think days like these are best for researching. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr dedicated his life to his work, but the way we revisit his inspiring words of resistance can most often fit into concise Tweets — short soundbites that eclipse his fuller message.
Especially on MLK day I like to learn more about the dynamism of his work, the cohorts of activists he worked with, and the work that is still left to be done. To start, here is a wonderful video posted by Jay Smooth on Illdoctrine called “Ten OTHER Things Martin Luther King Said.” Enjoy!
