For more than 30 years, photographer and sociologist Camilo José Vergara has documented murals of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in America’s inner cities. On the 49th anniversary of the March on Washington, Vergara writes about the roles King’s image has played in American culture.
I’m going to always have this as something she wrote from the heart and I will never forget this for as long as I am still breathing. She is my heart my and soul for if she were no here I would not be so happy and full of life. She get me up set and calms at the same time, the only face I want to see before I go to sleep and only face I want to wake up to with my mourning breath. She accepts me with all my pains and all the weird moods. She is the one I will always be with even if we are not together. She is my one true friend and lover which is hard to find in the same women these days, so I am lucky to have met here and dated her in the same life time. So what I’m trying to say is that without this women right here I would still be the shy boy with the long hair and weird accent (imitated J) but because of you I cut my hair and grew a lot confidence in myself and matured up to your standards. The last thing you deserve from me is something better, less attitude/shut down and more talking/expressing myself, less brat and show more man, learn to laugh at things and not be uptight about it, and last of all treat you better than a princess because you are a queen. When you read this please give me a hug and a long kiss that way I know I am the king you’re waiting for.
You every been i a place to long and you start feeling uncomfortable. that’s when you know you need to leave this place, its not doing things anything but causing you trouble and anger. I’ve been here in the same place for 18 years with the same women, being here has made me realize that i need to get away. I need to get away from these people i don’t care if they are family, they’ve bothered me, enslaved me, and control all actions for years. so august 13th is when i will not be bothered by this people for at least a year. I’ll be at school and working so i will have no time to call or think about these damn people. i cant wait till that day comes so these people don’t have to see me.
