Before you get into the pomp and pageantry MLK Day, take some time to study the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr that fought for worker’s rights, reparations, denounced capitalism and war. View Dr. King’s life from end to the beginning – the entire evolution.

Once you see the ending of his life you realize why he died and the courage he had to push forward for his people. You will also get a glimpse into where he would stand today. He was 39 at the time of his death. The legacy of Dr. King extends beyond speech about “dreams,” marches and the mainstream friendly notions. At the end of his life, he talked past Civil Rights and had even adjusted his stance on nonviolence resistance.

Today, we must do better because we are better. We must demand of each other than we fight for a fuller life because we have no choice now. Indifference is not an option. We can see what complacency gets us, a walk backwards. When we look back at Dr. King, all th study tools are present move us forward as a people. Enjoy these conceptual renderings of what MLK Day would look like today of Dr. King were alive. Thanks, americawakiewakie.com.

 

 

“Actually, we who engage in nonviolent direct action are not the creators of tension. We merely bring to the surface the hidden tension that is already alive. We bring it out in the open, where it can be seen and dealt with.” — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (1963)
