MLK: Drawing on His Power, below, uses video, hand-drawn pictures, stop-motion photography, music and narration to recall Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and his legacy.
It was written and produced by my sixteen-year old son and two of his high school classmates. I hope you’ll take a few minutes to watch it.
Today we celebrate MLK Day in mid-winter—and in the middle of America’s worst economic recession in history, when unemployment among African Americans has soared to 16%, more than double that of white Americans.
Now, more than ever, we need to remember the incredible heroism of our country’s African American civil rights organizers and Dr. King’s ultimate sacrifice—and to draw on their power.
