An article celebrating Dr Martin Luther King's famous speech, "I HAVE A DREAM" by Madalyn Morgan

St Peter’s Review – Autumn 2013 Edition – Page 8

FIFTY YEARS AGO MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. SAID
“I HAVE A DREAM”
by
Madalyn Morgan 
Dr Martin Luther King Jr. was a Baptist minister, a social activist, and the leader of the Civil Rights Movement in the United States of America from the mid-1950s until his death in 1968.  For tens of millions of African Americans he was the leader of their crusade for racial equality.  His was the educated voice needed to end discrimination and humiliation, and bring black Americans human dignity. 
 
The first I knew of the Civil Rights Movement was when I was a schoolgirl living in a small rural town in England.  I used to listen to the protest songs of Bob Dylan and Joan Baez.  So it is a great privilege to research and write about the icon of that movement, Dr Martin Luther King Jr. and some of those who risked everything to fight for change and freedom. 

                       Martin Luther King’s dream was for racial equality
In the spring of 1963, Martin Luther King Jr. led a nonviolent demonstration in Birmingham, Alabama.  Thousands of African American families, marching peacefully, were met with violence when police set dogs on them; turned fire hoses on the children, and kicked young black men to the ground.  By the end of the march, Martin Luther King and many of his supporters were in jail.  After Birmingham, Dr King and his supporters organised a bigger, but still peaceful, demonstration.  On August 28, 1963, the historic March on Washington drew more than 200,000 black and white people to the Lincoln Memorial.

The first short book trailer of Foxden Acres

http://animoto.com/play/FVxNujlZAOb4oBOCFPGcnQ#

Another copy of Foxden Acres sold. Thank you to everyone at The BookStop Cafe, Lincoln.

"Where you can enjoy lovely cup of Tea or Coffee and read a good book, from our shelves, in comfortable surroundings."

The BookSop Café is situated a stones throw from the centre of Lincoln, on Steephill, beneath Imperial Teas. 
 A Unique Idea
 
And a fabulous idea for anyone who wants to relax with a cup of fresh coffee, or tea, and read a  book.

This amazing café supports Indie authors by having 'café book shelves' where customers can take a book, read it while relaxing with a drink - and a slice of delicious cake - and if they like it they can buy it.

I'm proud to have signed copies of Foxden Acres, with bookmarks and cards, in the BookStop Café.  With so many good authors, and so many page turning books on sale, to sell a copy is an achievement.  Thank you.

                                   Foxden Acres in Good Company



    What a spectacular bookcase
    Foxden Acres is right in the middle of it.


 
    Good luck Joff.

    A little piece of history about the building in which BookStop Cafe is situated.

    Norman House on Steep Hill, Lincoln in England is a historic building and an example of Norman domestic arthitecture.  The building is at 46-47 Steep Hill and 7 Christs Hospital Terrace. The architectural evidence suggests a date 1170-80.  The building was known for many years as "Aaron the Jew's House", and appears as such in many references, as it is believed to have been the residence of Aaron of Lincoln (d.1186), then the greatest Jewish financier of England.  The building has been a shop for many years, and currently home to a tea importers.

     

    The BookStop Café is through the black doors.


    Smart Entrance

    *
    And Parking?

    There are several carparks in the Bailgate area. The nearest is in the corner of Castle Square. You can get to it by driving up Drury Lane. The carpark is about 100yds from the Cafe. :)
