MLK DAY 2019


Happy MLK Day 2019

Every year I have felt called to write a blogpost about MLK Day. For me it hits home as a holiday that needs to be celebrated! I am a black woman and for me to be able to freely and creatively express myself my ancestors had to endure so much injustice! For me to receive  amazing education and the opportunities that I have my ancestors had to protest and believe that their sacrifices were worth it! 

Martin Luther King Jr. was an outspoken and dynamic speaker that urged people to see that the culture of his time was completely okay with the subpar treatment of African Americans. His I have a Dream Speech was spoken in D.C on 8/28/1963 to almost 250,000 people! 250,000 people heard his "I Have A Dream Speech" 
How hard did he have to work to get to that platform to deliver that speech??
How many days in jail did he acculumlate before he was able to deliver this speech?

There was so much fight in this amazing man that impacted millions of people! His speech was given 50 years ago but it is still relevant and impactful today!!
If that is not IMPACTFUL I don't know what is!
In honor of MLK Day I have shared 2 of my favorite quotes by Dr. King as they are a guiding light for me as I live and work day to day!!


1. "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about the things that matter." Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

DO NOT BE AFRAID TO SPEAK OUT!






2. Life's  most persistent and urgent question is What are you doing for others?

This question is so key for EVERYBODY! What are you doing today that can impact others for good?

Hope yall enjoyed todays post! It hits home for me and I encourage everyone to not be quiet about any injustices they may see around them as change has to HAS to start with you!!

Til next time,

Peace & Love,
Karen Beatty-Martinez
