MLK & Ture

Peace to Stokley Carmichael (Kwame Ture) for backing the King and trying to keep peace on the streets of DC during the 1968 riots that killed 12 and burned over 1000 buildings.

Thanks Stephen for this wonderful post. We can't help but acknowledge this stalwart, and his steadfastness. A man with an inert, and natural ability to demonstrate love even when there was nothing to love .

"A piece of freedom is no longer enoug for the people, nor for a nation in which Negroes are a part. For we have been given pieces of freedom, but unlike a piece of bread, a piece of freedom cannot finish hunger. Freedom is life, it cannot be had in instalments, we must have freedom, or we are not free" Dr Martin Luther King Jr

So long Comrade Martin!!!!!

Thank you for stopping in as always. I love this pic too. It was my was of commemorating Dr. King and what he and Kwame Ture stood for...PEACE.
