The MLK You Don't Know

"The MLK You Don't Know" is an online presentation looking at rare speeches and discussing little known facts about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. King was a real man, who had a lot more depth and complexity than we often give him credit for. One of the travesties of history is that we begin to make actual people into myths and legends. We strip away their human flaws, their imperfections so that they fit our view/ narrative. When we do this we rob them of their relatability, depth, character and complexity. We turn their very interesting lives into a bland snapshots, boring tales that most people will forget or ignore.

Randy’s Rodeo


Once a country-focused dance hall, this venue hosted the Ramones, Rush, L7, the Beastie Boys and Patti Smith in addition to an infamous 1978 Sex Pistols gig. Now its hosts bingo nights as Randy’s Bingo. KISS-FM DJs Joe Anthony and Lou Roney built an extension onto Randy's stage during the ’70s after booking Canadian prog-rock band Rush and realizing all of the equipment wouldn’t fit. For many, the Sex Pistols' gig (pictured) remains Randy's most legendary.
