The privy knew him as Eastside Stevie; the rest of the world called him A$AP Yams. One of the most clairvoyant minds in music history. R.I.P.

The speech that changed everything. Paramount. Revolutionary. The “I Have A Dream” speech mobilized a generation and its message continues to be paramount in our collective growth. For this lesson, and the many others you taught the world, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., we thank you. | (Lincoln Memorial, Washington D.C., on August 28, 1963) #PushingCultureForward #mlk

Self-love is much easier said than practiced. To be a beacon of light for others while treading murky waters in your own life can be an exhausting process. Understanding this, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. served up this hearty affirmation. And for this lesson, we thank you. | (Philadelphia, PA, on October 26, 1967) #PushingCultureForward #mlk

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had an uncanny ability to speak truth in layman’s terms. For instance, he spoke on having a poverty of the spirit, which cites how we prioritize personal triumphs that are rooted in vanity as opposed to acts to better humanity. And for that lesson, we thank you. | #PushingCultureForward #mlk

There’s importance in taking personal inventory and asking yourself, “Does my work reflect the greatness that I wish to attain?” Here, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. used the metaphor of street sweeping, a job some would call menial. MLK points out why it’s the dedication to greatness and efficiency that defines a person, no matter the career, task, or life calling. | (Chicago, Illinois) #PushingCultureForward #mlk

Neighborhood is a microcosm of community, a concept that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. abided by and preached to be the pillar of connectivity. But only through true faith in humanity does a community transform into brotherhoods and sisterhoods, which are key in successfully pushing through societal constructs. And for that lesson, we thank you. | (National Cathedral, Washington, D.C., on March 31, 1968) #PushingCultureForward #mlk

What would our society look like if it truly placed its value in people? Not finances or status. Not objects of perceived value or even social media likes. But people. Dr. Martin Luther King discussed why this thinking is problematic while discussing his opposition to the Vietnam War in 1967. But have we really taken heed to his words? | (Riverside Church, New York City, NY, on April 4, 1967) #PushingCultureForward #mlk

Love languages aren’t exclusive to relationships. In fact, love, the linguistics around it, and the work/actions it takes to sustain it are what connects humanity. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s lens on life was informed by his viewpoints on love and its power to ultimately be the conduit for true peace. And for that message, we thank you. | (Atlanta, GA, 1967) #PushingCultureForward #mlk

In “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop,” the last speech Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered, he makes mention of the “promised land.” The concept, though anchored by biblical reference, contextualized the end goal for the Memphis Sanitation Strike of 1968, which challenged America’s ideals of equality after years of poor pay and dangerous working conditions for African-Americans, and the eventual deaths of workers Echol Cole and Robert Walker by garbage compactors. MLK called for nonviolent protests and boycotts, despite tempers flaring, with a promise that the patience displayed by protesters would guide them to the “promised land” – not unlike Moses guiding the Israelites. | (Memphis, Tennessee, April 3, 1968) #PushingCultureForward #mlk

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s preachings greatly hinged on the ideals of community, brotherhood, and sisterhood. So much so that he preached the importance of uplifting the weak and voiceless, including victims who’ve been marginalized by society – some even unjustly called “enemy.” And for that lesson, we thank you. | (Riverside Church, New York City, NY, on April 4, 1967) #PushingCultureForward #mlk
