I am not sure how this works in West, but in Russia it is considered to be very dumb, making zero sense and very poor taste to give "Happy birthday" congratulations to dead people.

Last I checked, this isn't Russia.

Love the photos and the memories.

Well, I'm sure you know that different countries/cultures do things differently. Better to mark the day his life started, than the day his life ended.

I'm not sure if men like Mr. King exist anymore and if they do, they aren't heard enough. So days to remember him and others like him are most definitely needed.

It's not long until the anniversary of Coretta's death too

For anyone who's interested, I remember reading an article about the influence Daniel O'Connell's life had on Martin Luther King Jnr, although it was a fairly minor influence, I believe.

Also, the civil rights movement in Northern Ireland consciously modelled their efforts on the African-American movement.


Anyway, nice thread, JN. It makes a nice read and the images are lovely.
I was so busy this evening but it's nice to take a moment to remember the great people who have come before us and provided so much to so many, even things we sometimes take for granted. I wish the MLK memorial had been open when I visited Washington DC back in '06.

WOW Madame C.J. Walker now that's big time. He must have been a bad man.

I am going to call your bluff and say that you are just making that up.

What is more in poor taste? Celebrating Lenin and Stalin birthdays, or adding the word "congratulation" to a civil right brithday celebration thread.
These 2 kill millions of Russians and Georgians

MOSCOW — The police in Russia plan to resubmit for trial a tax evasion case in which the primary defendant died in detention more than two years ago, his former employer said Tuesday.
