[Podcast] Black Consciousness and the Legacy of Martin Luther King JR
Every third Monday in January, the United States celebrates the birth of Martin Luther King, Jr. Almost immediately after his death, petitions for his birthday to be recognized as a national holiday began to circulate. It wasn’t until President Ronald Regan signed the holiday into law in 1983 that it became official.
While his life and accomplishments are notable, its important for the Conscious Community to look back and understand what worked and what didn’t so that we can move forward without making the same mistakes as he did.
