By sharing Martin Luther King Jr. in color, it reminds folks that the civil rights era was not that long ago. The black and white photos gives white folks especially the sense that it was back in the stone age. It wasn't. Many of our relatives lived this era, they're still here.
Please don’t act like everyone loved my father. He was assassinated. A 1967 poll reflected that he was one of the most hated men in America. Most hated. Many who quote him now and evoke him to deter justice today would likely hate, and may already hate, the authentic King. #MLK pic.twitter.com/yGdQXL5MJ3
