Martin Luther King Jr. Tribute

index2
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

In honor of his birthday January 15th and the celebration of MLK day:


The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Via Goodreads: King scholar Clayborne Carson has constructed a remarkable first-person account of Dr. King’s extraordinary life. Beginning with his boyhood, the book portrays King’s education as a minister, his ascendancy as a leader of the Montgomery bus boycott, his pivotal role in the civil rights demonstrations in Washington, D.C.

Rated: 4.6 on amazon.com

 

This is a great book if you want a deeper level of understanding of Dr. King’s spirit, and his intentions in the Civil Rights Movement.

Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.

  2. It’s a wonderful read, I just wished it wasn’t; this day I mean, seen more as a black holiday, as opposed to listening to the words that meant so much to mankind in general. I understand the nature of the slant, but all to often, his commemoration are projects works, the imagery so often seen as Martin Luther highways and bridges outside low income slums, or inner city problems, the man remembered often; but without his most important words that he died for.
