Nice work and an excellent implementation of a cool idea!

A remarkable man. People need to stop ruining his legacy. He needs to be recognized.

Not to get political or anything, but everything in the news for the past few years has been about race. MLK believed not only that people shouldn't be racist, but also that race shouldn't even be acknowledged because it's irrelevant.
