Because I’ll be damned if I let Martin Luther King Jr. get whitewashed this year. #MLK #MLKday #MartinLutherKingDay #WhiteChurchQuiet #BLM

Image shows black and white photo of Colin Kaepernick in his San Francisco 49ers home uniform, kneeling during the National Anthem at a NFL Game as a protest against racism.

Text added on top of the image, in white letters highlighted with a red background:

You may well ask, “Why direct action?” Why sit ins, marches, and so forth? Isn’t negotiation a better path?” Indeed, this is the very purpose of direct action.

Nonviolent direction seeks to . . . foster such a tension that a community which has constantly refused to negotiate is forced to confront the issue.

The quotation attribution is in red text highlighted on a white background:

Martin Luther King Jr.
Letter from Birmingham Jail, 1963
