Honor King: End Racism! Poster of the Week [Note: Poster doesn't fit here - at bottom the poster says: Poor People's Campaign]: CSPG’s poster commemorates Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, January 15. On April 8, 1968, four days after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, this poster was carried in a memorial march held in Memphis, Tennessee. This copy was donated to CSPG by Reverend James Lawson, who taught nonviolent resistance to King, and was one of the organizers of the memorial march. The Poor People's Campaign sticker added to the bottom of the poster, was a campaign planned by King and others to gain economic justice for poor people in the US. "The arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice.” This statement by Theodore Parker, a 19th century Unitarian minister, was paraphrased and popularized by King. In light of Trump’s most recent racist remarks made recently, it also reminds us of how much work is needed to create a world where racism and discrimination are not tolerated, by anyone, at anytime.

Ohhhhhh - dis is a goodin. Made me all warm on the inside. “Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.” “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr. #peace #love #mlkingjr

“When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” #MLKingJR #ihaveadreamspeech //// This day is more than fireworks and good food. Let July 4th be a day where we all reflect. Reflect on where we are as a country and what we can do better. A day where we can look around and see EVERYONE in this country as our bothers & sisters. As our equals. People as deserving of Gods grace & blessings as we all are! No our country isn’t perfect. We can not change our difficult history, but we can give hope to our future by realizing NOW that we are all “one human race”. A nation, under God. So today I choose to be “independent” from anything that keeps me from seeing my neighbor as my brother and my equal. I encourage you to do the same.
