Black History: Special Delivery!!
As we commemorate the 2021 MLK Holiday, The Black Mail Blog has been sharing some little known facts and quotes from Dr. King. We hope you have enjoyed these posts.
In his book, Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos To Community, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. addresses the “unequal” distribution of power between black and white people. Where Do We Go From Here challenges the nation at a time of both intense struggle and opportunity. King was very concerned that white liberals in particular were perhaps more interested in symbols rather than substance of the movement. He questioned whether or not they truly were invested in equal distribution of power. A powerful quote from the book, “There is nothing essentially wrong with power. The problem is that in America power is unequally distributed.”

As I read these quotes I am struck by how succinct and obviously true they all are… yet at the time largely incomprehensible to most white people.

They are all from the book I am sending you!
