Today is the day our country has set aside to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. and his iconic “I Have A Dream...” speech which he delivered at the March on Washington in 1963. He envisioned a nation where people aren’t judged by the color of their skin, but the content of their character:
Watching the Spurs game the other night I saw the warm up shirts the teams were wearing on the sidelines. I mistakenly first thought they were a robotic tie-dye and then my wife looked them up:
“The Dri-FIT T-shirt features a cymatics design, an artistic representation of sound waves directly from MLK’s speech on Aug. 28, 1963. All NBA proceeds from the sale of the shirts will go to the National Civil Rights Museum.”
