Martin Luther King Jr Maya Angelou Memorial Statue

Martin Luther King Jr has been paraphrased for the sake of space on his memorial statue.

Carved on the north face of the thirty-foot-tall granite statue, the memorial reads "I was a drum major for justice, peace and righteousness."

But that's not exactly what the great man said…

What he really said was:

Dream Realized! Samuel L. Jackson To Make Broadway Debut!

samuel-jackson-broadway-debut.jpg

In one hell of a role!!!

It was announced this afternoon that Samuel L. Jackson will be making his Broadway debut this October in the new Broadway production, The Mountaintop, by Katori Hall. Samuel will be stepping into the shoes of the legendary Dr. Martin Lurther King as the show explores Dr. King's last moments before his assassination.

It was rumored that Halle Berry was to play the role of Camae, a mysterious maid at the Lorraine Motel, the setting of the play, but the producers have confirmed that due to her "child custody issues," they've had to go in another direction.

Congrats on the honor, Samuel. It's a big role for your first time out, but if anyone can handle it, it's you! Good luck!

Inspiring High School Senior Comes Out To Her Peers During Assembly!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayInspiration

Words cannot do justice to just how awesome this girl is.

Check out this truly inspirational speech from a High School senior named Kayla K., who bravely and articulately announced that she is a lesbian to her classmates during an assembly in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.

We cannot imagine how difficult this must have been for her, which is why her courage and conviction needs to not only be applauded, but also shared with as many people as possible!

These words not only need to be heard, but understood and ACCEPTED, because it's the fact-of-the-matter truth in every single way!

Bravo, bb! The LGBT community is lucky to have you.

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!!

Exciting Details On The Plot Of X-Men: First Class!

Filed under: Film Flickers

Oh man. This just keeps sounding better and better.

Now that the entire cast has pretty much been announced, more details about the plot of X-Men: First Class are emerging, and it sounds effing AWESOME!

We're hearing that the film takes place in 1960's reality where there is James Bond-esque 'retro-future technology,' with John F. Kennedy as President and Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X strongly featured in the backdrop.

The story will focus on Magneto and Professor X's friendship and its subsequent deterioration, and Xavier will neither be bald nor wheel-chair bound - although it will explain how that happens! We'll also get to see costumes that are inspired more from the old comics than the recent films!

Although a young Cyclops and Jean Grey will not appear, we've got it confirmed that Kevin Bacon will be portraying the villainous Sebastian Shaw, and January Jones WILL be The Hellfire Club's White Queen, Emma Frost!

Amazing!

It definitely sounds like these guys know what they're doing this time around!

We can't wait to see it! Exciting exciting!

Thoughts??
