As We Celebrate The 50th Anniversary Of The Death Of Dr. Martin Luther King I Could Only Imagine

As we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Death of Dr. Martin L. King I could only imagine just what he went through. It was one damn thing to had to fight other folk but to endure fighting with black folk I could only imagine him saying damn all I am doing and ungrateful black folk are giving me hell. I can relate.

Today is just another day that some black folk are going to talk about the man as if they were about what he stood for back then and today when they were lying then and lying now. I can relate.

I didn’t walk with Dr. King because I was only 6 years old during the time of his death but I could only imagine how good he felt trying to make like better for ungrateful black folk in spite of knowing that they didn’t give a damn about the movement. I can relate.

Well I am 55 years old and living in the last days I ain’t got time, I ain’t putting up with other folk mess and damn sure ain’t putting up with ungrateful black folk mess. I am especially talking to those ungrateful black folk who are older than me and say they are about what is good for black folk when they are lying and the truth ain’t in them. I know you, been knowing you and I know what you are about.

So on this day April 4, 2018 I will continue to carry on with not only the “Dream” but all that Dr. King stood for the many speeches that folk don’t want you to hear. I am awake and I have been awake since the late 80’s when my Lord spoke to me. You see I heard him say boy, “go out and be a voice for the children, the elderly, the voiceless, the scared folk and folk who do not know so you can’t hold it against them until you learn that they know.” I joined the Democratic Party, I joined Black Workers For Justice, I searched and I found the NAACP, I started my own thing P.I.E.C.E. People Interested in Enhancing Children’s Education. I joined other groups that I thought was trying to some good things but I found myself resigning from more groups than many folk will ever be a member of. Today I am a die hard Democrat, I am a die hard Life Fully Paid Member of the NAACP The National Association For The Advancement of Colored People.

So folk black, brown, white and other I have invested too much time and resources as a community activist and a political activist and I refused to allow anyone to turn around. I am in the season of moving onward and cutting off black folk who are scared, who are in denial and folk who I have come to the conclusion just don’t give a damn. I will not walk with these folk because these folk can be dangerous to my health.

Today I Could Only Imagine.

With tears rolling, I knew this day was coming but I still can’t grasp the fact that you are gone. Grandma, all the laughs and jokes that we shared will forever be with me.

Now it’s time for you to rest and I must accept the fact that even though you are not here physically, your memories and all you’ve taught me will forever live on. I will never forget you Ada Ruth Dickens…I will tell the world how much of a loving mother and grandmother you are…love your granddaughter, Kita
