“the ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. “ quote: martin luther king, jr.
today i met one of the heroes of the civil rights movement, dr. albert paul brinson. dr. brinson was one of the original organizers of the atlanta student movement, involving sit-ins and acts of civil disobedience that eventually led to the end of segregation in the south. he was a friend and colleague of dr. martin luther king jr., and walked side by side with dr. king at several marches including the march on washington and the selma to montgomery march. thank you dr. brinson for your hospitality and time today telling me about what it was like to be a leader of civil rights and some of your experiences. #mlkjr#civilrights#heroes#martinlutherkingjr#selmatomontgomerymarch#atlanta#ebeneezerbaptistchurch#humanrights#love#loceeachother
