…media, 2014 review, 2015 intentions, community colleges, CFHE Gathering, #NAWD, COCAL Updates and other posts can wait. Today we honor a human rights and social justice activism icon and model. Laura Gibbs writes in Online Course Announcements: Martin Luther King Day edition
I've created some posters with AutoMotivator in honor of Martin Luther King Day! You can see a random poster here each time the page reloads, and below is a Flickr album [slide show]. Then there is a list of all the quotations, with a link to the poster for each quotation along with image information.
