Searching For Signs Of King’s Inner Life In His Advice Column

Stanford University’s King Papers Project is a trove of the late civil rights leader’s writings, from sermons to letters to world leaders and celebrities. That collection also contains King’s overlooked advice column, “Advice for Living,” which ran during the late 1950s in Ebony magazine…
But King was an actual human being, and not all that long ago. And despite the fact that so many people can readily summon his voice and visage, we still don’t know all that much about his inner life.
According to David Garrow, who won a Pulitzer Prize for his King biography Bearing the Cross, that’s the way King wanted it.
“It’s why he’s always out there in a dour, dark suit and a white shirt and a dark tie,” Garrow said. King felt that he was the face of black Americans; he wanted to be taken very seriously.
 
…King’s response? Maybe you should get over yourself.
“Lonesomeness and fearfulness almost always stem from an over absorption in self,” he says to her. “When one thinks only about his problems and misfortunes he cannot help living in fear and worry. First, you must rise above your misfortune enough to see that it is not so bad that it couldn’t be worse. Second, you must find proper avenues of escape from self pity. Cultivate a love for great music. Give yourself to some purpose or cause beyond yourself.”
…And there’s something humanizing about the experience of reading King, who in death has become a hero shorn of most of his controversial contours, and disagreeing with him — not even in grand terms but just because his opinions might be kind of annoying. On the occasion of his holiday, we should consider the fullness of him as a person with ordinary myopias, and not simply as an ideal or an idea. He’s certainly worthy of it.
