How we celebrated MLK day

Luke has been working on a project about Martin Luther King and Harriet Tubman. So naturally he wanted to celebrate today by dressing up. He choose to wear black and white clothes. Then Luke wanted to have something to eat to help celebrate. He choose water since everyone can drink from the same water fountain.
Luke then wanted to listen to Michael Jackson's "Black or White."

My observance of the holiday was a little more subtle.
I mistook a black man for my husband at the bookstore. I am not sure which one of us was more surprised when I lovingly reached for him then pulled back and said "I thought you were somebody else."
