Martin Luther King, Jr said:  Donโ€™t let anybody take your manhood. Be proud of our heritage. As somebody said earlier tonight, we donโ€™t have anything to be ashamed of. Somebody told a lie one day. They couched it in language. They made everything black ugly and evil. Look in your dictionary and see the synonyms of the word black. Itโ€™s always something degrading, low and sinister. Look at the word white. Itโ€™s always something pure, high, clean. Well I want to get the language right tonight. I want to get the language so right that everybody here will cry out, โ€œYES! Iโ€™M BLACK. Iโ€™M PROUD OF IT. Iโ€™M BLACK AND BEAUTIFUL!โ€ โ€“ M.L.K.

On May 8, 1967, Dr. #MartinLutherKingJr. granted an interview to veteran NBC News correspondent Sander Vanocur and made it clear that his famous #dream had turned into a #nightmare.  The interview happened just three and a half years after Kingโ€™s powerful โ€œ#NormalcyNeverAgainโ€ sermonโ€”more commonly known as the โ€œ#IHaveaDreamโ€ speech, thanks to Kingโ€™s now iconic improvisations. His dear friend, gospel singer #MahaliaJackson exhorted him to โ€œTell them about the dream, Martin!โ€ But three and a half years later, he realized that โ€œthe triple evils of #racism, #economicexploitation and #militarismโ€ are cornerstones of the #UnitedStates. And he realized that the #USgovernment is the โ€œgreatest purveyor of #violence in the world today.โ€ Make no mistake: When King told us about his dream, he understood the โ€œfierce urgency of now,โ€ but it took him a few more years to understand how deeply this nation lies to itself about the content of its character.  When King told us about his dream, he understood that we โ€œcould never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horror of #policebrutality,โ€ but it took him a few more years to understand that the so-called #whiteworkingclass had perverted and distorted the โ€œdrum major instinct,โ€ living day-to-day with this โ€œfalse feeling that heโ€™s superior because his skin is white.โ€ When King told us about his dream, he knew that the Deep #South was overrun with rabid #racists, but it would take him a few more years to organize the Poor Peopleโ€™s Campaign and let the powers that be in D.C. know that โ€œweโ€™re coming to get our check.โ€ #foodforthought #rbg #problack #blackisbeautiful #blackexcellence #dreamsandnightmares #theroot #blackgirlsrock #blackwomenrock #blackmenrock

Love is the answer. ๐Ÿ’— End racism and hate. We are all connected on our beautiful planet and it breaks my heart to see hate and division. If you think division is good then you are doing what the cabal wants and not being guided by your heart. We are all brothers and sisters.  #MartinLutherKingJr #blackisbeautiful #equality #unity #peace #love #5dEarth #endracism #bohemian

On Monday last week, students at a high school in Jacksonville, Florida, protested to make their #African-American #history course a full-year course.  Ten #TerryParkerHighSchool students staged a sit-in with the intent to protest the school to change their current half-credit, one semester-long #blackhistory course to a full-credit, year-long course. The students believe that the subject matter being taught deserves more time and #attention and that their peers could benefit from #learning the material was well.  Angelina Roque, who organized the protest, said in a video on Instagram that she and the other students would not be #silenced by the #police, who were called to the scene. She went on to say that the #protest would โ€œmake them #hear us, make them see us, make them listen to us.โ€ Superintendent Nikolai Vitti has since said in a #statement that the students would face no #punishment for protesting and that instead, the school was willing to grant the extension to the course: โ€œI respect that students demonstrated self-advocacy โ€Žand used their voice to signal concerns about their education. If there is student demand for a full-credit and year-long African-American โ€ŽHistory course, then we should and will provide it to students. We will work through the process of #developing and offering that course. Students who participated in the sit-in will not face disciplinary action.โ€#Melanin #blackessence #rbg #embracebeauty #blackmagic #blackgirlsrock #blackwomenrock #blackmenrock #foodforthought #blackisbeautiful
