In honor of MLK Day, we are sharing this work entitled “Your Choice” by Emma Amos which depicts Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X alongside one another. The work itself can be displayed in two different orientations, with one figure facing upward while the other is upside down. No matter how you choose to view it, Amos presents the two men as connected and inseparable, capturing the essence of contrasting philosophies bound by a shared pursuit of racial justice.
Today is your last chance to see this work on view in "Emma Amos: Color Odyssey." 
"Your Choice," 1998, by Emma Amos (Amos Family, courtesy of RYAN LEE Gallery, New York)

Martin Luther King Jr. Day
On this MLK Day we present a 1963 songbook of anthems for the civil rights movement, We Shall Overcome! Songs of the Southern Freedom Movement, compiled by American folk musicians and civil rights activists Guy and Candie Carawan and published in New York by folk music publishers Oak Publications. The Carawans were involved in the Highlander Research and Education Center where Guy Carawan was the music director. American civil rights leader Julian Bond credits Carawan with introducing the song “We Shall Overcome,” which descended from a late 19th-century gospel hymn by Charles Albert Tindley, at the founding meeting of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee in Raleigh, North Carolina, in 1960. From there, it spread orally and became an anthem of Southern African American labor union and civil rights activism.  
This collection includes over 40 protest songs of the civil rights movement, including “I'm Gonna Sit at the Welcome Table,” “We Shall Not be Moved,” “This Little Light of Mine,” “Ballad of the Student Sit-ins,” “Which Side are You On?,” “Freedom’s Comin’ and It Won’t Be Long,” “Come and Go with Me to That Land,” “Woke Up This Morning with My Mind on Freedom,” “The Hammer Song,” “We’ll Never Turn Back,” and “Keep your Eyes on the Prize.” Guy Carawan wrote many of the arrangements with American composer and musicologist Joseph Byrd. Folklorist and musicologist Ethel Raim served as the music editor and noted author and activist Julius Lester was the editorial assistant.

This is so important when dealing with the misconception of black history and what Americans are taught about the Civil Rights Movement.

Who needs Republicans for political opponents when you have “Democrats” like Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema?
Kyrsten Sinema is effectively killing Voting Rights legislation right before MLKjr Day. She is repulsively evil.
Oh, and please look at that video. It’s not that old. But Sinema has managed to out Lieberman, Joe Lieberman—the conservative, BlueDog Democrat she allegedly reviled at the time. I don’t know what her price was, but someone is getting every penny’s worth from their shameless, bought & paid for U.S. Senator.

This MLK Day, let’s remember that racism is something we have to continue to actively fight.
In grade school, they always talked about the work of Rev. Dr. King as something of the past, something that addressed issues that no longer needed to be confronted. That’s simply not true - racism is still very much alive in our nation. One of the best ways to honor MLK is to continue to speak out against such racism and to work to combat it. 
The struggles that Dr. King faced aren’t just something out of a history textbook. So many people encounter these same things every single day. MLK Day isn’t just a celebration of a past triumph - it’s a reminder of the need to continue Dr. King’s work.
