Print Your Own Martin Luther King Jr. Quote Poster

January 17, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm


In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we invite you to stop by our Book Arts Studio this Tuesday – Friday (Jan. 17 – Jan. 20) between 11am – 2pm to print your own poster highlighting a quote from King’s book, “Stride Toward Freedom: The Montgomery Story.”

“Stride Towards Freedom” is an historic account of the 1955 – 1956 Montgomery bus boycott. In the book’s second chapter, King recounts his response to a white Montgomery resident asking him why the boycotters came “in to destroy” the city’s “peaceful and harmonious race relations.” King stated:

“‘Sir, […] you have never had real peace in Montgomery. You have had a sort of negative peace in which the Negro too often accepted his state of subordination. But this is not true peace. **True peace is not merely the absence of tension; it is the presence of justice.** The tension we see in Montgomery today is the necessary tension that comes when the oppressed rise up and start to move forward toward a permanent, positive peace.”

This drop-in event is free and open to the public. We look forward to seeing you at 713 Monroe Ave!
