The MLK You Don't Know

Melaneyes Media Uploaded by aprystai
"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.
