#SOL19: Celebrate Action


 

Nobel Peace Prize 1964  . . .

Because of his words and actions.

To do

Or not to do

To take action

Or not to take action

Make a decision

Don’t let indecision freeze your thoughts or actions.

Equity featured in my post here last year.

When? 

When do we move beyond surface quotes?  Using that quote that pops up on Google or Twitter and move to deeper knowledge? 

What was the essence of MLK Jr?

As I “celebrate” (#OLW19) the life of Martin Luther King, my actions will be to speak up and out about “white privilege.” Information is the first step towards action and power.

I hold these words close, “What the main sections of the civil rights movement in the United States are saying is that the demand for dignity, equality, jobs, and citizenship will not be abandoned or diluted or postponed. If that means resistance and conflict we shall not flinch. We shall not be cowed. We are no longer afraid.” (Nobel Prize Lecture, 1964)

What will you say? 

What will you do? 

How do you honor MLK’s legacy?
