Via Goodreads: King scholar Clayborne Carson has constructed a remarkable first-person account of Dr. King’s extraordinary life. Beginning with his boyhood, the book portrays King’s education as a minister, his ascendancy as a leader of the Montgomery bus boycott, his pivotal role in the civil rights demonstrations in Washington, D.C.
Why I Journal: I am not always particularly good at keeping a Journal. I am however a firm believer in the benefits it provides. I am hoping I will get better at it with time. Most of the time when I journal I am just rambling on aimlessly. Luckily the point is not to have something eloquent to say, rather to just say something. I believe it helps to un-jumble things in my brain. So hopefully the more unclear, messy, and insensible my writing is, the more organized my thoughts will be afterwards 🙂 I also think it is a tool in helping to get feelings and emotions out before sharing them with other people. When I do share with other people I want to do so with positive intention.
