In observance of MLK day, I am both reflecting on Dr. King’s words, his speeches, his perspectives on ‘beloved community’ and then later, continuing to work on plans for high-functioning public participation toward greater open government. However, I must say, that I wish there was more substantive events commemorating Dr. King, like perhaps reenactments or (real) town halls, where we could create community discussions about his legacy and various core ideas, like freedom, prejudice, etc. However, the American History Museum here in DC has a couple of good learning activities for both young and old, which will be good. It’s got me thinking to begin planning an event for next year. The day is about reflection and service, so maybe there’s a way to combine both today. Hey, listen to MLK by U2.
