You’ll be inspired by Rev. Barber’s 14-point Fusion Politics Strategy, a model we will consider here. Another inspiration: a 4-minute video of Nina Turner speaking at an MLK Jr Rally in DC on Saturday. And a link to the full I Have a Dream speech, just to get you pumped.
Martin Luther King, Jr. 1963-2017
We have compiled a post in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. that includes a link to the annual Roundhouse MLK Rally, a brief summary of Rev. Wm. Barber’s 14-point Fusion Movement strategies, an inspiring 4 minute speech delivered by Nina Turner — she is riveting and inspiring. We close with ‘the speech,” MLK, Jr’s historic “I’ve Got a Dream,” speech from 1963.
NAACP MLK, Jr. Roundhouse Rally. Jan 16, Noon-1pm. Roundhouse Rotunda. UNM Law Professor, Natasha Howard will be the featured speaker at the Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration at noon Monday at the Capitol, an annual event that draws hundreds of people to the Roundhouse to reflect on King’s legacy. Her talk will focus on the civil rights leader’s vision of a “beloved community” — a peaceful world free from discrimination and bigotry — and the role of a contemporary movement that she believes has some answers on how to establish and maintain such an inclusive community.

Shortly after this event, at 2 p.m., also at the Rotunda, Witness for the People, a State of Our State Address proclaiming Interfaith Worker Justice’s Priorities for the 2017 Roundhouse session. Featuring the New Mexico Peace Choir.
