“We still have a dream” banner flies in Memphis, 49 years after MLK’s assassination

Organizers with the Movement for Black Lives and the Fight for $15 dropped a banner in Memphis on Tuesday, marking the 49th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. in the city where he was killed.

The banner, which reads “We still have a dream,” also includes a call for residents to meet at city hall at 5 p.m. for a march to the Lorraine Motel, where King was killed on a balcony outside his second-story room.

The banner’s placement seems symbolic, too. It hangs on Riverside Drive:: Riverside is the name of the church in New York City where King made one of his last major speeches, 50 years ago on Tuesday. Titled “Beyond Vietnam,” the civil rights leader spoke out against not only the Vietnam War, but also racial and socioeconomic inequality in the United States. Read more. (4/4/2017 11:50 AM)


Forty-nine years ago on 23 November 1963 the Doctor Who’s first episode ever premiered on the BBC. I’ll never stop thanking the wonderful people who created and worked for this marvellous and spectacular tv show and those who are still working of it! Can’t find the right words to describe my feelings, I just want to THANK ALL!


We’ve known for over a year that Kate and Jeri had reconciled, because of their actions at the 49th anniversary convention in Vegas. Sitting next to each other, laughing, taking selfies. It was clear that after over a decade of distance post series, and some public talk by Garett Wang & Jeri herself, something had changed finally - for the better. But this is the first time to my knowledge seeing any public acknowledgment of that reconciliation and specifically of Kate’s apology. Thought it worth sharing.

I was confused by Kate’s assertion of being “professional” but figured it refers to the fact that the conflict and tension never came to name calling or shouting matches or even physical fights. It was limited to hostility, tensions, animosity while they kept working. Attitudes over actions.

The book has a remarkable amount on the conflict between Kate and Jeri, pages and pages worth. I wish I could give you a better estimate but I’m reading the kindle version so there aren’t page numbers like normal.
