"MLK Day 2017"

Each year I create a piece of art to celebrate the contributions MLK made to Equal rights... The fight continues. In light of our soon to be, new president, we have to remember this each day, and not become complacent in the face of the overwhelming inequity, superstition, hate, greed, and ignorance, he and his administration heap on us, and the world at large. We cannot hold onto what we have gained through silence, and we risk loosing even more if we choose the ease of excuses over the difficulties of pushing back.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

I very much respect and admire his work... and being in his city, I think its important to pay tribute to the man and the work.

Yes, and I bet his historic home is a pretty accurate representation of a modest US middle class dwelling during the interwar period despite being in Jim Crow territory. (Ice box in the kitchen, furniture size radio in the living room, couple material luxuries by 1930's deep South beyond the Kansas City, St Louis, Louisville, Cincinnati, Baltimore, and DC city boundaries).
