Martin Luther King Day

Martin Luther King Day is the holiday we reflect on America: On its history, its present, and its future. It's a holiday for real life, the bad parts, the daily work, and the hope for a better future. I was alive when Mart Luther King was murdered at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee. I was alive when schools were segregated. I was alive when we called for justice and I said their names! The struggle for justice and equality is alive and well in 2022.


Here are some of my favorite songs to put on your playlist for Martin Luther King Day.


Some classics to put on your MLK day playlist.


Nina Simone - Why the King of Love is Dead

Stevie Wonder - Happy Birthday

Patty Griffin - Up to the Mountain


Some new music:


H.E.R. - Inner City Blues
