MLK Day: Honoring all of Our S/HEroes

For me, MLK Day is about so many people… It's about MLK Jr, of course, but it's also about the men and women who guided him, the people who gave him strength, and the people who have continued his work since his death. It's about the women and men who have and have not been pictured…the names that have not been documented for fighting for the rights of people of color. It's about the work that has been done and the work that still needs to be done. We were so lucky to have had Martin Luther King Jr, Malcolm X, James Baldwin, Gloria Anzaldua, Yuri Kochiyama, Cesar Chavez, Nina Simone, Maya Angelou, the list is endless. We are lucky to still have Dolores Huerta, Angela Davis, Elaine Brown, Alice Walker, Joan Baez, Muhammed Ali, Grace Lee Boggs, RuPaul, and the heroes and Sheroes that will be… #thefightcontinues #MLKJR #unsungheroes #unsungsheroes #blackhistory IS #americanhistory ✊(#IwishthisEMOJIwasBROWN)
