Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!
This past Friday I watched Lee Daniels’ “The Butler”. This movie is based on a true story of the life of a man working as a butler in the white house from the time of Eisenhower on through to Reagan (Almost needless to say a very radical time period in our nations history) I found it to be an incredible movie. I highly recommend watching it this week to help understand, and remember why our country takes a day to honor Dr. King and all peaceful protesters of that time. As the movie illustrates, the butler might not have gone out and protested in those critical times, but he did his part by being a hard worker just an all around good guy. This in itself helped to breakdown racial stereotypes, and therefore destroy a premeditated hate.
