#MLKDay 2021- Celebrating the LEGACY and the LIFE of a KING![vids]

MLKDay-thegamutt

What is in a NAME? ‘King’. Merriam Webster gives one definition: a person or thing that is better or more important than all others. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. may not think this to be true of himself. He did not think he was greater or better than us, but his fight has made us GREATER and BETTER people–ALL PEOPLE.

#CollinsHillHighSchool principal issues APOLOGY after racist MLK photo ends up in yearbook! [Pics]

They are saying it was an ‘accident’. Not saying that things don’t happen… but….

I worked on a yearbook staff in high school years ago. Nothing went to the printers without being approved…and even at the printers…a preview copy is sent for review…IJS.

Somehow, a photo with racist imagery and language ended up on a senior page in the Collins Hill High School yearbook, leading to a letter today to families from the principal apologizing and pledging to find out what happened.

The edited image shows a teen posed with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. The young man is holding a sheet of paper that is supposed to be hall pass from King allowing the student to use racist language.

February is FINALLY HERE! We need this one BADLY! January was a rough month, but we are still here and the legacy of our greats WILL be celebrated here….EVERYDAY! #TheGamutt kicks off BLACK HISTORY MONTH 2020!

For the few that are not informed, just what is ‘Black History Month and where did it get its origins?

blackhistory-thegamutt

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African-Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of blacks in U.S. history. The event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month. Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating black history. Continue reading #TheGamutt KICKS off #BlackHistoryMonth2020! [details]

ON THIS DAY we celebrate a KING!

Thank You Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. he would have been 91 years old on January 15th…..

Many who quote him now would have hated him then. He was assassinated for trying to eradicate the evils some claim he’d support today. But he was a Christ-centered, love-fueled, justice-seeking, peacemaking, globally-minded, nonviolent revolutionary & prophet. #MLK91 #MLKDay #MLK Continue reading #MLKDay: Thank You #MLK2020 #DrMartinLutherKingJr!
