Happy Birthday Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

 What are you doing today and/or tomorrow to honor the memory of this legendary civil rights hero?

Martin Luther King was more than just his "I Have A Dream Speech." He was a husband, a father, a preacher, an activist and most of all a man. His legacy paved the way for our current African American president Barack Obama.

 I really like this picture of them. People are just so creative!! This looks so real.

Today is a great day to thank God for the privileges you have obtained because of the sacrifice of our fore-fathers and tomorrow is a great day to participate in the wonderful freedom day activities across the country. :)

No disrespect but doesn't the first picture look the Dr. King is saying n*gga what? Bwhahahahhahaha!

Dr. King pretty much gave his life for a cause that was near and dear to his heart. In a way, it really does seem as if God instilled a sincere purpose in the man's soul.

Thank you, Dr. King.

Welcome and Thank you! I am forever grateful as well! :)

He really did give his all and it's so sad that his contributions are just now starting to get the respect and recognition he truly deserves in my opinion. I want people to do better and much more to recognize and acknowledge his greatness!

P.S. I love this... said...

Great post!

This is the first photo I've seen of MLK without a suit.

And he looks like, "What up tho?" teehee
