TO BE SILENT AND IN DENIAL ABOUT Y/OUR SOCIETY’S PERVASIVE

“What I Saw at Selma”

King’s genius was that he knew when to thwart the law—and when to obey it.

March 07, 2015

My Mother’s cousin, Emmy Lou aka Clare, was married to Harris Wofford.
Their marriage was a vow and a partnership for social justice and civil rights.

“Martin Luther King Jr. liked to joke that I was the one member of his legal team
who would help him go to jail rather than using all the tricks of the trade to keep him out.
I’d originally connected with King after returning from travels in India in 1949, soon after Gandhi was assassinated.
My wife and I had followed Gandhi’s trail and gotten to know many of his supporters.
And while I was learning everything I could about Mahatma Gandhi, King was doing the same…”

“…This weekend, we mark half a century since Martin Luther King Jr. led the famous march from Selma to Montgomery, the last of three marches begun in Selma, Alabama, in March of 1965 to champion a voting rights act. But it would be a mistake to remember only that third march, which triumphantly reached the capitol steps in Montgomery—or the first terrible march, which ended in “Bloody Sunday” on the Edmund Pettus Bridge. To fully appreciate King’s skill as a leader, we need to remember the second march—the one that was cut short when King made the hard decision to comply with a temporary federal court injunction prohibiting a march and turn back to Selma instead of continuing on to Montgomery. At that pivotal moment, the quintessential American advocate of civil disobedience chose to obey the law blocking his path. And in so doing, King paved the way for the successful third march and then passage of the Voting Rights Act five months later…”

Afraid of what Selma holds for him, King makes a late-night call to his friend

and fellow freedom fighter Mahalia Jackson

and asks her to share “the Lord’s voice” with him.

She answers by singing his favorite gospel song,

Take My Hand, Precious Lord.”

I Am A Man, Sanitation workers assemble outside Clayborn Temple, Memphis, TN, 1968.
“One of the most extraordinary and least understood aspects
of Dr. Martin Luther King’s leadership
was his incisive understanding
of the power of visual images to alter public opinion,”
says Maurice Berger,
 standing in front of an oversize silk-screen portrait
of the slain civil rights leader.
 Berger, who is a professor at the University of Maryland,
 Baltimore County’s Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture,
is the man behind a moving and expansive new exhibition
documenting the effect of imagery on the civil rights movement
 for the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

THE REVEREND DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.
He was my hero.
PERIOD.
I was bound as a child.
I was invisible-
a minority that can occur at birth or at any time in life.
I was born with a “turned about”  body,
a voice,
a creative talent
and
courage
and
compassion
and
a bold, persevering spirit
that overcame
the definitions and boundaries and boxes
imposed on
and
of
me.

*
And, I knew the fire and wing within me.
I was determined to walk, to stand,
and
to step up to the majesty of my Divine destiny.
As a child,
I would listen to Martin Luther King. Jr.’s speeches
and hear direct stories of him
and
my solar plexus
would ignite!
*
I understood being silenced, suppressed
and
the  soaring strength
it takes to shatter
stereo-types,
prisons of perception,
 upheld by
 the arrogance and privileges and hierarchical
injustices
practiced  and protected
by
 the dominant culture.
*
And,
I had a magnet
that attracted
kindness, courage, free souls, strength,
empathy and compassion
of
social renegades/revolutionaries who defied convention
who were true to their hearts
and
to their
True North,
hurricane lamps of love,
faith and loyalty-
mavericks
and
creative genius-
all knew and called out the Divine
within
humanity.
*
My walk and my “walk”.
Blessed to uphold and see the blessings within others.
Perhaps, this capacity was shaped in the crucible
of stillness and silence of
my early years.
I knew I would only be understood
and be able to sing/run with other ancient souls-
those whose lives have known trial and tribulation-
and still had the capacity and depth
to see the first pure light
in the deepest, darkest night
of the soul.
HOW I GOT OVER.
WE SHALL OVERCOME.
A gift.

My Mother’s cousin
Emmy Lou /Claire Lindgren Wofford

advised and marched with him

I believe we choose our alliances.
Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scotta Scott King
were a formidable
alliance.

An Anam Cara alliance
– Destiny, the Divine
and

that searches and finds
dignity, true blue love,

an intimacy that
continuously calls out
the best in the other.
Call and Response.
Improvisational.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
*
Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor;
it must be demanded by the oppressed.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
*
 Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable…
Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice,
suffering, and struggle;
 the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
*
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin,
but by the content of their character.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
*
I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
*
If a man hasn’t discovered something that he will die for,
he isn’t fit to live.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
*
If we are to go forward, we must go back
and
rediscover those precious values
– that all reality hinges on moral foundations
and
that all reality has spiritual control.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
*
In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies,
but the silence of our friends.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
