That’s better than having an MLK Day. I don’t doubt his contribution to the nation, but it’s generally ignored what he did in his spare time. The FBI tailed him. Turns out he spent almost every day of the month in a different woman’s bed. When confronted with that, he called them “tension releasers”. A minister, no less..George Washington Carver would have been a much better choice. His inventions and actions helped millions. We still use peanut butter and tomatoes, today, for example. He dramatically improved crop rotation, observing what worked and what didn’t. Until the 1960s, crop rotation was still standard practice in most farms. (Still should be, but today most go the fertilizer route, which replaces 4 of the 20 nutrients plants need.) .Frederick Douglas would have been another excellent choice.
