This set of illustrations, which will be updated within the next five weeks, is a collaboration with the amazing Yosimar Reyes. When I read this entry on his Facebook notes, I immediately told him I had to illustrate them all. Thankfully, he said yes.

King said in an interview that this photograph was taken as he tried to explain to his daughter Yolanda why she could not go to Funtown, a whites-only amusement park in Atlanta. King claims to have been tongue-tied when speaking to her. “One of the most painful experiences I have ever faced was to see her tears when I told her Funtown was closed to colored children, for I realized the first dark cloud of inferiority had floated into her little mental sky.”

Just something to contemplate on this MLK Day weekend.

His daughter seems so contemplative in that picture.

No matter how articulate or sagacious you are, there are times that talking to a child takes your tongue away and leaves you grasping at straws.

This white dude is crying because he just received a one-year sentence for a hate crime in which he and maybe a dozen other white dudes beat up a black teenager with fists, feet, knives and beer bottles, even after the teen was unconscious. The highest sentence dealt for this crime was three years. The assistant attorney had recommended eight years.
