In Honor of Dr. King

So we don't forget, I wanted to share a link or two.

First, to a great archive of news coverage about the man whose life and work we honor today. The Martin Luther King, Jr. Newspaper Articles Archive is a project of NewspaperARCHIVE.com. It's worth a look, when you have a moment.

Next, to a virtual recreation of what it was like to live under segregation. Just so there is no misunderstanding, this site was created as a reminder of what odd twists racism and inequality can lead us into. It does not celebrate segregation. It saddens me that I have to try to clarify this, but I think I do.
