Another picture of me in deep thought. On Saturday I was in Memphis, TN and had the opportunity to visit the area where #martinlutherkingjr was assassinated. I have seen pictures of this area in black & white photography all my life. To be in that space was eerie. I can't even express eveything that was going through my head. There was a lot of hurt filling my soul. I wanted to cry, but I did not.
I had no idea until I visited #thelorrainemotel that at the time of MLKjr's stay there that the hotel was owned by a Black woman. I never knew that.

Thank you @kidlitexchange for this review copy. As always, all opinions are my own. 😊#kidlitexchange #partner ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Martin Rising is a beautiful retelling of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Andrea and Brian Pinkney use poetry to take readers through the world changing life of #mlk in an impactful and original way. As a mom and former teacher, this is one book that I will be sharing with my children as they study the life and lasting impact of Martin Luther King, Jr. I only wish I had this book when we visited #thelorrainemotel!! #bookstagram

Visited the @ncrmuseum this week and it is a must see when visiting #Memphis #Tennessee They have done a great job incorporating struggle of equality, while educating on the GREATNESS, often unheard of heroes, of Black Culture. Stepping onto the balcony of #thelorrainemotel where the #prophet #martyr #MartinLutherKingJr was slaughtered was overwhelming. #tears #WeSpeakYourName #WeShallOvercome #equality #civilrights #humanrights #sayitloud #black ✊🏽#proud #me #grateful #ncrmuseum #freedomriders #mlk50

When we took #demlassiterboys on their first road trip across the country in 2009 #thelorrainemotel was a must... and of course TN finest, my girl @tajgeorge too......50 years later, there is still work to be done. Thank you Dr. King for paying the ultimate sacrifice. #mlk50 #thedream #memphis #demlassiterboys ➡️

Early morning, April four
Shot rings out in the Memphis sky.
Free at last, they took your life
They could not take your pride.

In the name of love
What more in the name of love.
In the name of love
What more in the name of love.

I mean, at this point, what can I even say? April 4, 1968...March 18, 2018...Five Minutes Ago... So much time, so many years, so little progress. I was SIX years old! If you do the math, it’s pretty easy to conclude that, based on our “progress” as a society, I will also not get there with you. I’ve concluded that. I would love to be wrong. #martinlutherkingjr #memphis #lorrainemotel #thelorrainemotel #iamaman #iamaman #thepromisedland #themountaintop #fuckhate #stophate #noracism #fuckracism #racismisamentalillness

The Lorraine Motel. Memphis Tennessee. #memphis #tennessee #thelorrainemotel #mlk

50 years ago today, Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. If you ever have the chance to travel to The National Civil Rights Museum at The Lorraine Motel in Memphis, I highly recommend it.
