Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Written by 

Each year on the third Monday of January, we celebrate the life and the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The national holiday honoring Dr. King is an occasion to celebrate his life and a day to continue his work toward nonviolent social change in America and the world. It is a time for the nation to remember the injustices that Dr. King fought and a time to remember his message of change through nonviolence.

I encourage you to use this occasion as an opportunity to carry on Dr. King's unfinished work, the fight for the freedom, equality, peace and the dignity of all races and people.

The Space Coast Progressive Alliance will join The Martin Luther King Jr. Coalition Monday, January 21, 2013 celebrating the life of MLK and participate in their annual Peace March.

All are invited to join us 9am at the King Library, 955 E. University Blvd. March ends at the Melbourne Auditorium, 625 Hibiscus Blvd.

The Macedonia Baptist Church, 2729 Lipscomb St. Melbourne will host a commemorative service honoring Martin Luther King Jr. 6pm Sunday January 20, 2013.

    I have a dream. One of a day when the Liberal Dems stop, or can no longer use race baiting, and diviseveness to win elections. The same with sexism. Anyone notice who Floridas Lieutenant Governor is? A black woman. Anyone notice that Condileeza Rice would have soundly beaten Romney in the GOP primaries if she would have chosen to run? No thanks to our propaganda ministers in the mainstream media who lie to the public constantly. No thanks to the so called enlightened who use hatred, and character assasination to win elections, instead of ideas. What have the Dems done for minorities? A higher percentage of Republicans voted for the equal rights legislation in 1964. Republicans set the slaves free, even though the Dems claimed the war was to costly, and wanted to end it. (Sound familiar) Dems falsely claim to be for women, (but only those who think like them) yet 3 million more women are living in poverty since Obama took office. The truth will set you free.
