Martin Luther King, Jr.

Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day! I hope y'all were able to get out into the community and do some good over this long weekend. We're all probably well aware of Dr. King's legacy, so I'm not going to give you all a history lesson (but, if you need one click here). What I will share are these two photos I came across on the interwebs in which you see Dr. King taking a break from wearing a suit and tie. 

In the first photo we see Dr. King in a short sleeve white shirt, sunglasses, and a watch. Pretty typical, but I was intrigued by the fact that he is actually utilizing his breast pocket. No one does that anymore. I absolutely had to share the second one -- work shirt and denim. Sounds like a familiar trend, huh? And the photo is just powerful. I have no idea what exactly was happening in the photo, but look at how the men took a knee when he walked by -- that's powerful.
