Facial Hair Friday: In honor of MLK
I was looking through ARC at the pictures of how many people participated, when I noticed something that had never registered before: Martin Luther King Jr. has a mustache.
But when you look at the picture above, you realize why I didn’t notice earlier. He is completely calm and collected, even as he is about to speak to thousands and thousands of people (see image below). He is focused, in the moment, intense. He is making history. How could anyone watching in person or on film notice minor details then?
