February is traditionally considered Black History Month and in honor of that theme I’m reposting a fantastic interview of Dr. Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. I used this video in my MLK Day post last month and watched it again today. It’s really well done and newly remastered by NBC for color. It’s a 28 minute interview, very substantive, and recorded 11 months before his tragic and untimely assassination.
I found this gem today and I wanted to pass it along in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. As the inauguration of the first black vice president looms large this week the strong military presence and shutdown in D.C. makes it obvious we still have a lot of work to do.
The attack on Capitol Hill was both jarring and disgusting. The noose they constructed, chants of “hang Mike Pence” and the brandishing of a confederate flag inside House chambers made me sick to my stomach. White nationalism is a scourge on the soul of America and we need to hit the reset button on how we talk about it and how we track and combat it.
The future of our great nation depends on it.
