Martin Luther King Jr
As you well know, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was born 84 years ago today (Jan 15th) in Atlanta. But did you know that he was born with the name Michael? In this awesome photo (doesn’t he look adorable in his hat?), Dr. King and Mrs. Coretta Scott King march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama to protest the lack of voting rights for African Americans in 1965.

Former first lady Jackie Kennedy (whose husband President John F. Kennedy had been assassinated in 1963) and Coretta Scott King at Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1968 funeral. Two women who’s husbands were viciously ripped from their lives by hatred’s bullet. This moment is heavy…raw…honest… Both of these women were fantastic.
