What Martin Luther King Actually Did

Here, in honour of Martin Luther King Day, is a really wonderful blog post from 2011 that’s doing the rounds again today.

…this is what the great Dr. Martin Luther King accomplished.  Not that he marched, nor that he gave speeches.

He ended the terror of living as a black person, especially in the south.

The post is brilliant and important. Today is a good day to read it. And then to read it again.

(Make sure you read right to the end. The author’s postscript regarding the experiences of black women is important.)
