The "Scottsboro Stories" blog reflects the writings, photographs, arrangements, opinions and musings of me, Garry L. Morgan, only. I do not represent the Scottsboro Boys Museum or the Scottsboro Multicultural Foundation - the parent organization of the Scottsboro Boys Museum. I receive no profit from this endeavor. This blog is for educational purposes and that of open expression about racial and sexual discrimination, institutional and personal racism and the deadliest war of all time - "The Culture War."

(Dr. King poster at left created for Department of Defense)

The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday celebrates the life and legacy of a man who brought hope and healing to America. It is also a day of intercultural cooperation, to commemorate the timeless values he taught us, such as courage, truth, justice, compassion, dignity, humility, and service. It is held the third Monday of January, shortly after his birthday, Jan. 21, 2013.

"As the boycott gained strength, its impact on Montgomery City Lines bus company was immediately apparent. On 3 January 1956, Montgomery City Lines informed the city commission of the need to double fares in order to keep operating."

"As the most visible leader of the boycott, King was threatened repeatedly over the course of the 13-month boycott. On 30 January 1956, King's house was bombed while he spoke at a mass meeting. His wife and daughter escaped uninjured, and King urged supporters to continue their commitment to nonviolence." http://mlk-kpp01.stanford.edu/


Dr. King discusses his motivations behind his philosophy of non-violent resistance.
