Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968)

“We’re Comin’ to Get our Check”

These were some of the things Dr. King was talking about up until the day he was assassinated not only for what he believed, but because the message was catching on.

The message lives on.

I’m a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities.

“Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian” is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.

  1. Thanks for this reminder, Relando. When discussing history and race issues or civil rights in America, I often remind people that the “danger” was not in the made up divisions of race, but in the very real disparities in wealth and access to the means of production. The “threat” of Dr. King and others was their economic message!
