From our visit to Memphis late last year: “Lorraine Hotel Room 306, where Martin Luther King, JR, was assassinated. If you haven't, read Michael Eric Dyson's biography on King, called "I May Not Get There With You". Very honest book. He makes a point of showing MLK's weaknesses, that he's a man, not a god, because deifying humans is a disservice to their real strength. King was flawed, but he was as strong as any man in our history

You must listen to this conscious awakening and soul reviving speech.
MLK’s Last Speech, “If I had sneezed “🤧 The most powerful #MLK speech you’ve never heard.
I couldn’t control my emotions. It brought me into tears.

Bookstore date today! I do all my work at night and Jared is at school in the mornings, so midday dates are our thing now ☺️ Not ashamed to say we spent most of the time in the Star Wars section 🙌🏻 One of my New Years resolutions was to read one book a month. I’m loving my current read (The Garden of Burning Sand by Corban Addison) But need some recommendations for next month. Anything about civil rights, interracial families, adoption or human rights would be amazing, but I’d also love to hear your #1 favorite book and I might just choose it! ☺️📚
“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about the things that matter.” -Martin Luther King Jr.

Interviewed with @news12nj regarding last nights actions from California Federal Judge Alsup of temporarily blocking the Trump administrations efforts to end the Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals program. La lucha sigue familia! We cannot stop here and become content with minimal progress. We have come this far and the extension of DACA is NOT the solution nor a win.
