On Martin Luther King (Jr) Day, I thought it important that we take a moment to reflect upon the man. Not the distorted politically-correct, left-leaning concoction the Left has invented, but the real man and his real cause.

Martin Luther King jr. is way more than just his "I Have A Dream" speech, but sadly to some people that is all he's known for.  Because of King we are no longer segregated, we have our equal rights, and most importantly we have our freedom.  So when you think of Dr. Martin Luther King jr. think of all that he has went through and done for us to be where we are today.

 we believe martin Luther king stood for a great cause and not only as a leader but conducting such marches and speeches nonviolently really showed his character to be someone different with high morals and class for not only him self but for the black community as well

On April 16th, 2013, the 50th anniversary of the day that Martin Luther King, Jr. began writing his “Letter from Birmingham Jail,” the Birmingham Public Library (BPL) will sponsor a program entitled “Letter from Birmingham Jail: A Worldwide Celebration.”

 

Participants in this program will host public readings from the “Letter” at various locations around the globe: libraries, museums, schools, universities, churches, synagogues, temples, places where people work, public parks, bookstores, street corners, coffee shops and anywhere that people want to participate. In addition to people who are participating throughout the Birmingham area and around Alabama, we have participants around the globe, from Israel to China to England to South Africa and Somalia. Mayor William Bell will read from the “Letter” at Central and more names are being added each day.

 

People who participate in the readings can read the full text of the “Letter” or selections from the “Letter,” individually, as a group, or however they want to do this. Groups participating may range from two people to hundreds of people. Readings can be done at any time of the day on April 16th. Visit the BPL ‘Letter from Birmingham Jail’ website to get more information or ideas for how to replicate the program at your library.

We chose this article because it talks about how Emmett Till was killed because he was allegedly accused of flirting with a white woman when he didn't.
