    Celebrating MLK Day with a flashback photo in history. I was only 17 years old when this picture was taken. I was at a press conference where Dr. King was speaking. This photo represents inspiration to me to begin my writing career.

    Ben, I invite you to listen to a speech that I delivered this morning titled ‘The Inconvenient King’:

    + I encourage you to study my father.

    Because your tweet is part lies & part propaganda.

    What I don’t understand is why you tweeted about Daddy at all.

    “Not only is it a chaos caucus, it’s a hot mess, it’s a clown show Jonathan. It took them fifteen times to get a Speaker.” @harrisonjaime on the state of House Republicans #SundayShow

    The GOP Florida legislature is now compiling a list of names and titles of university educators and staff who do work related to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

    Ron DeSantis wants them rooted out of higher education.

    That’s how things are going in “free” Florida. 👇🏼

    Good Lord, this is even worse than I assumed.

    The @bangordailynews reprinted King’s “I Have a Dream” speech but they cut out a bunch of parts they apparently deemed too divisive.

    Police brutality? Gone.

    Poverty? Gone.

    This is pathetic.
