Malcolm X was an outspoken independent leader who came to embrace all people. His independence formed the basis of his eventual alliance with Dr. Martin Luther King. A fact forgotten in history is Dr. King considered running for President as an independent with peace movement leader Dr. Ben Spock to bring together the predominantly white peace movement with the civil rights movement.
In that spirit, we hope to see you at the Martin Luther King Day March and Festival. This event is a food drive for the Capital Area Food Bank. Please bring non-perishable food items to any locations along the route of this event. Hook up with us at 9 am at UT, at 10 am at the Capitol south steps, or at our booth on Huston-Tillotson campus starting from 10 am to 3 pm. (Look for the “CodeNEXT Wrecks Austin” signs.)
Hoping to see you on Monday, Austin!
PS Thanks to Ed English and all the good folks who showed up on Tuesday at Frisco's. We'd love to see more of these around the city. We'll help you do it.
