Your president could learn a few things from MLK. #LetterFromBirminghamJail "One who breaks an unjust law must do so openly, lovingly, and with willingness to accept the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice is in reality expressing the highest respect for law" "Time itself is neutral; it can be used either destructively or constructively. More and more I feel that the people of ill will have used time much more effectively than have the people of good will. We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people. Human progress never rolls in on wheels of inevitability; it comes through the tireless efforts of men willing to work to be co-workers with God, and without this hard work, time itself becomes an ally of the forces of social stagnation. We must use time creatively, in the knowledge that the time is always ripe to do right."

Reading #letterfrombirminghamjail for class #martinlutgerkingjr I wish #blackhistorymonth. Was more about that blacks have accomplished, rather than what whites did wrong. MLK was a brilliant man, who shows so much power and emotion, just in his writing style. It's #beautiful.

The Unclouded Sky, art by Bryan Crowson. My friend Geoffrey Gwin took his daughter, Mia, to Kelly Ingram Park in Birmingham this week to celebrate Martin Luther King Day. He posted splendid pictures of his little girl, her face aglow with happiness, humor, intelligence, innocence and joy. It struck me that I was seeing the very opposite of what King described in Letter from Birmingham Jail, in the passage that has stuck with me since I read it in college: "... when you suddenly find your tongue twisted and your speech stammering as you seek to explain to your six-year-old daughter why she can't go to the public amusement park that has just been advertised on television, and see tears welling up in her eyes when she is told that Funtown is closed to colored children, and see ominous clouds of inferiority beginning to form in her little mental sky ..." And so, as a salute to Martin Luther King, I offer this image of his dream realized, The Unclouded Sky of little Mia Gwin's precious face. (I feel audacious drawing the daughter of an artist as prodigiously talented as Geoffrey. I hope Geoffrey, Tiffany and Mia like it!) #art #portraits #children #civilrights #martinlutherking #martinlutherkingday #kellyingrampark #Birmingham #letterfrombirminghamjail

"One has not only a legal, but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws." - Martin Luther King Jr. Although his speech is one of the greatest speeches, his #LetterFromBirminghamJail is my favorite. #oneofourgretestleaders #civildisobedience #MLK

I have reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's greatest stumbling block in his stride towards freedom is not the White Citizen's Counciler or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate, who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice..."

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. #mlk #letterfrombirminghamjail

"I guess it is easy for those who have never felt the stinging darts of segregation to say wait. But when you have seen vicious mobs lynch your mothers and fathers at will and drown your sisters and brothers at whim; when you have seen hate-filled policemen curse, kick, brutalize, and even kill your black brothers and sisters with impunity; when you see the vast majority of your 20 million Negro brothers smothering in an airtight cage of poverty in the midst of an affluent society; when you suddenly find your tongue twisted and your speech stammering as you seek to explain to your six-year-old daughter why she can’t go to the public amusement park that has just been advertised on television, and see the tears welling up in her little eyes when she is told that Funtown is closed to colored children, and see the depressing clouds of inferiority begin to form in her little mental sky, and see her begin to distort her little personality by unconsciously developing a bitterness toward white people..." #TheKing #LetterfromBirminghamJail
