    Default Amazing photo of MLK

    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/ma...meline_mlk.htm
    I'll have to check to see if they're accurate and complete.

    1960
    October 19 – King is arrested at a sit-in in Atlanta.

    1961
    December 16 – King and other protesters are arrested in Albany, Georgia.

    1963
    April – King is arrested after demonstrating in Birmingham, Alabama. While in jail, King writes the widely circulated, “Letter From Birmingham Jail.”

    1964
    June 11 – King is arrested in St. Augustine, Florida for attempting to eat in a white-only restaurant.
