Dr Martin Luther King, Muhammad Ali and What Their Secret Friendship Teaches
Click on the image
Muhammad Ali and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. have been dominating my thoughts recently, and not only because their birthdays just passed, a mere two days apart. Ali was admitted to the hospital on Thursday for being in a "non-responsive state". This was happening as news that Selma, the film about Dr. King's 1965 civil rights campaign was being both snubbed at the Oscars and hammmered by President Lyndon Johnson's old apparatchiks, aghast that the film did not give LBJ what they believed was his proper due as a civil-rights hero. The national fear that these could have been Ali's last days, as well as the concern that LBJ wasn't getting enough of Dr. King's reflected glory, could cause your brain to short-circuit if you were familiar with the actuality of their history, not to mention their private friendship during the 1960s.
