1966 Ware Lecture: Don't Sleep Through the Revolution, by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. "The idea whose time has come today is the idea of freedom and human dignity, and so allover the world we see something of freedom explosion, and this reveals to us that we are in the midst of revolutionary times. An older order is passing away and a new order is coming into being. The great question is, what do we do when we find ourselves in such a period?" #BlackLivesMatter

Bread and roses strike is an example of the connection Unitarian history has with labor history

1912: The slogan "Bread and Roses" originated in a poem of that name by James Oppenheim, published in The American Magazine in December 1911, which attributed it to "the women in the West." It is commonly associated with a textile strike in Lawrence, Massachusetts during January–March 1912, now often known as the "Bread and Roses strike".
The Fight of America's Working Class: Your Great-Grandparents Would Be Ashamed
The photograph shows strikers from the Lawrence Massachusetts Textile strike being surrounded by Massachusetts State militia. The strike began on this day, January 11, in the year 1912. A new law had gone into effect at the first of the year that put limits on the number of hours in a work week. The textile factory owners responded by cutting the pay of the workers proportionally to the new shorter work week. When the workers realized this, they went on strike in mass. Things got pretty ugly before it was all over. What I find fascinating about this image is that it is the people, not the military, displaying the US flag.

Henry Bergh, "the great meddler." Founder of the ASPCA. Bergh had incredible strength of character and never wavered from confronting abuse of animals or children. Though I believe the ASPCA has strayed from his ideals, Henry Bergh is someone I admire and an example to follow.
