Just had to share this photo of Dr. King that I found on the web. I rarely get to see his raw anger and determination (my interpretation of his expression anyway); just so powerful.

I'm not sure which arrest this is from. I should look into that. He does look quite young.

On edit:
Here are the dates of his arrests based on the timeline at http://afroamhistory.about.com/cs/martin...ne_mlk.htm
I'll have to check to see if they're accurate and complete.

October 19 – King is arrested at a sit-in in Atlanta.

1961
