The Result of My Presentation on the Last Full Day of Martin Luther King Jr’s Life

Well, it’s done. Went super. Standing ovation from some in the crowd. Nice to see. I could tell that people were shocked to learn the story of King’s last full day of life. The point about having meetings is one that many of us know in our own lives. Moreover, it’s easy to overlook the fact that King’s leadership on April 3, 1968 had very little to do with popularity. That’s because he’s quite unpopular, and not just with the typical racists who had despised him all along. His unpopularity extends to whites who had once been sympathetic to him and also to many blacks who had begun to lean toward more violent, aggressive action. It’s a great story that can change much of your outlook on your leadership.
