In honor of the man that sacrificed so much in the name of racial equality and love.



There was a time when we were beaten and killed if we even looked at a book. I was born the year after that fateful day when Dr. Martin Luther King was assassinated. My father, used to tell us about when he visited their church. I would have been so honored to meet such a brave visionary. Alas all I have is the legacy he left behind of hope and change. But I live in a society where I can work, think and act freely and be in a multi-culture marriage without the fear of death.

In honor of that here are some books on the great man, himself. One of the original fighter in the Black Lives Matter movement.
