On this #MLKDay ? ?, it’s worth remembering Louis Armstrong’s words after “Bloody Sunday” in Selma, Alabama 1965. Armstrong, a strong supporter of King, angrily told the press, “They would beat Jesus if he was black and marched.” Thank you, Dr. King. Thank you, Louis Armstrong. pic.twitter.com/2IZc33feuw
