The Non-Homogenized MLK.

It's MLK Day today, which prolly means most of you are off (I'm not), and prolly means you'll hear 3,128 mentions of MLK's "I Have A Dream" speech today. While few will argue that the crowning moment of the March On Washington was a seminal moment in American history, it often disturbs me that this brilliant, complex man is often boiled down to the non-threatening caricature of a single line ("content of character") of a single speech. There was so much more to MLK, and I'd challenge each of you to find something off the beaten (to death!) path today and share it in this space.

Or, you could just watch an NBA matinee today and say eff' it. Personally, I hope each of you contributes your own links, videos, and miscellany. Here's mine.

Question: Got anything to contribute?
