I've had to spend much of the day studying self-organizing systems, but I managed to punctuate all of this with breaks to see what folks are writing about MlK, and, tonight, I'll join a couple of telecouncils dedicated to celebrating King's life and work.
Here are some links to articles, including two of Dr. King's speeches:
