Today Americans celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Birthday. Google featured a drawing of people of different ethnicities and cultures holding hands in its doodle, and yesterday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day was searched over 5,000,000 times. For today, the social media’s feed for #mlk, #mlkday, #mlkday2017 blew the rest of the hashtags off the hemisphere. People shared inspiring, admirable, empowering phrases used by the good doctor. They shared love in his name.
Then the news that his son met with the President-Elect broke. Following a private meeting at his tower and a quick handshake, the President-Elect got in an elevator and left the scene leaving Martin Luther King III to face the press by himself.
