Lincoln—like Dr. King a century later—denied slavery was endemic to the nation’s founding, reckoning that a majority of "our 39 fathers" did not support it, & that "the right of property in a slave is not ‘distinctly & expressly affirmed’" in the Constitution. (Cooper Union) 1/2

Dr. King understood that if you were protesting racist behavior you were extremely susceptible to becoming racist in response and in seeing your fellow white brother and sister as inferior. So you had to guard against that by having an awareness of your Shadow.

On #MLKDay2022, it's worth asking: How would Dr. King want us to teach inclusion? Jennifer Richmond, the @MoralCourage team's Community Coordinator, converses with Mike Yates of the @ReinventionLab at @TeachForAmerica, about honoring MLK's message by liberating kids from boxes.

If you watched The Lord of the Rings and are curious about the lore behind it, Newtown highly recommends you pay this channel a visit. The skilled narration and exquisite illustrations that make up their videos is an experience in and of itself.
