Work- Work- Work! Teamwork definitely made the highway pick up work for us on a chilly Saturday morning. We used this Saturday to clean up around one of our local elementary schools for our MLK Day of Service Project. I hope you all can get into the rhythm of working enthusiastically with your team members on your jobs, school, and communities.

It is a bittersweet day as we have lost Rev. Billy Graham. The most influential Christian leader of the 20th Century. He preached the Gospel to over 215 million souls in over 150 countries. Dead at the age of 99, but alive in Christ. #Repost@bgea with @get_repost

#KILLMONGER or #TCHALLA?
Who is right and who is wrong?
In this #BlackPanther film, whose method best addresses the issues that the worldwide #AfricanDiaspora faces?
Killmonger's method, though well-planned in military tactics, lacked the true spirituality and balance of unifying nations as one people with a defined goal beyond liberation. He would have no interest in T'Challa's desire to build outreach centers in the hood and educate his fellow people of African descent. Just arming the oppressed would kill both the oppressors as well as the newly liberated as internal conflict would arise just like the advanced Wakandans fighting amongst themselves. He killed his own people (was intent on killing those in his own family simply for revenge), and even killed #Blackwomen (his girlfriend and one of the #DoraMilaje, and nearly killed the woman in the herb garden he choked and #Shuri) 🤔 just to serve his agenda. He was misguided rage, becoming the very thing he was fighting against. He was the product of a system designed to tear down and reprogram #Blackmen, especially, to be their own demise, and it's a tragic truth as so many of us carry the scars of this #racistsociety bent on destroying us psychologically and physically. Killmonger's acts aren't to be excused but his goal to liberate the oppressed was an honorable one, still. But you see, #Marvel/ #Hollywood had to put a leash on this empowering storyline at some point, and killing Killmonger, as opposed to saving him and reconditioning him as Shuri was already doing with #BuckyBarnes/ #WinterSoldier to remove his murderous #Hydra mind-programming, serves their agenda by telling #Blackpeople it's better to passively share what you have than to physically defend it. I peeped game immediately, but they ain't that slick! 😏 Same thing that happens every #MLKday or quoting him every time #racist#policebrutality kills an innocent/unarmed Black person but then they quote MLK and call for #peace? 🤔

Good day, people! It's Christie Prater again from Black River United Way. During our AmeriCorps Day of Service to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we encountered this ditch... It was full of trash, and it was steep, and I thought I would bust my butt a couple of times, but I didn't! After a bit of opposition and then some encouragement from my fellow #AmeriCorps members, I was motivated to go down into the ditch regardless of the risks, because it needed to be cleaned up. I was able to get in and out just fine and clean up the whole thing -- it looked great after I was done, and I felt great too! (Shout out to Sydney for reaching in to help me!) Moral of the story: TRYING Extinguishes FEAR! During my AmeriCorps term of service, I have been pushed to expand my comfort zone, which is really where you grow! Service is challenging, but it is worth the reward when you see improvement -- whether that is in cleaning up your neighborhood or watching students improve their literacy skills!
"I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." -MLK Jr. ✊🏾✊🏾✊🏾 We are still faced with pressing times. Still faced with proving our worth. Racism is still present today. We must unify to spread love and tolerance. Educate those who may be lost. Because love does truly conquer all. - Tiff

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?" - MLK Jr.
With a life of your own , you chose to live for the betterment of others, and I too will do the same.

In Ken McFarlane’s (@365ken) portrait work, two common threads weave through: strength and dignity. “What is often highlighted in our communities is not necessarily the only thing, the best thing or the things that we know to be true,” says the photographer, based in Philadelphia. Reclaiming representations of the black community is important to Ken. “I believe in giving agency or utilizing our own agency in reflecting ourselves in the larger sense,” he explains. “What Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and many others sacrificed allows me to have the mindset and the perspective that I have. My goal is really to open new windows of opportunity so that new heroes and heroines can be known.”
This post is in honor of #MLKDAY in the United States. Watch our story to see more from Ken.
