Bild (Martin Luther King Jr) - Every Truth Needs a Brave (One) Who Speaks Up
Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968), was one of the main leaders of the American civil rights movement. King was a Baptist minister, one of the few leadership roles available to black men at the time. He became a civil rights activist early in his career. He led the Montgomery Bus Boycott (1955 - 1956) and helped found the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (1957), serving as its first president. His efforts led to the 1963 March on Washington, where King delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech. Here he raised public consciousness of the civil rights movement and established himself as one of the greatest orators in U.S. history. In 1964, King became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to end segregation and racial discrimination through civil disobedience and other non-violent means.
A Salute to Sidney Poitier
For this year's Black History Month window we salute one of the greats whom we lost recently. Academy, Golden Globes, BAFTA, and Grammy... he won them all!
President Joe Biden, wrote: "With unflinching grandeur and poise – his singular warmth, depth, and stature on-screen – Sidney helped open the hearts of millions and changed the way America saw itself." Former president Barack Obama paid tribute to Poitier, calling him "a singular talent who epitomized dignity and grace". And Martin Scorsese wrote: "He had a vocal precision and physical power and grace that at moments seemed almost supernatural."
We thank him for sharing his art with the world!
