Martin Luther King and His True Legacy

As a white American who grew up in an integrated middle class neighborhood in Washington,  DC, in the 1950s, (I was in the minority in my elementary school and it never occurred to me that it was a problem) this blog post on what Martin Luther King actually accomplished made me really think. To be honest, it made me cry.

My friend, Isaye Barnwell who just retired from  Sweet Honey in the Rock first opened my eyes in her classes on Singing in the African American Tradition but I didn’t really get it until I read this post. So read on my friends. We all need to understand the depth of what he did.

Here is the LINK  to an excellent, articulate explanation of something that was completely outside of my consciousness until now. And, enjoy!
