Rosa Parks As Much Malcolm X as Martin Luther King, Jr.

On this Black History day, new book, “The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks,” by Jeanne Theoharis, a Brooklyn College professor shows Rosa Parks as much Malcolm X as she was Martin Luther King Jr.

The book, reviewed by New York Times writer, Charles M. Blow is on my list of books to read this month.

In the book, Rosa Parks states in her own words, “I had felt for a long time, that if I was ever told to get up so a white person could sit, I would refuse to do so.”

Happy Birthday Dr. King

Stevie Wonder was an untiring pioneer in the struggle to make Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday a National Holiday!
Let’s try to honor and reflect on what this one man was able to accomplish for African Americans, and in so doing, what he accomplished for mankind.
Hope you appreciate this song.
