Week 3 SOC Blogger Challenge: MLK/Heritage and Legacy In honor of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, the challenge of the 3rd week is to either create a project featuring the civil rights leader, creations celebrating your heritage, or what impact you hope to leave for future generations.
My Mom's family was from a small town and they were a family of share croppers. As a poor family with no television or subscriptions to magazines or the local newapaper, they received most of their news by word of mouth. So they missed the beginning of the Civil Rights Movement. They did not hear about Dr King until about 1958. Mom did tell me how she and her older sister sat at the lunch counter at Woolworth's in downtown Nashville and how they once went into a Whites Only restroom just to see what it looked like on the inside. We spent a great part of MLK Day 2014 talking about the 50's and 60's and the hunger of young adults back then and how it is today.
