Growing Native with Petey Mesquitey: Martin Luther King Jr.
A true story from my childhood.by Petey Mesquiteynear the banks of the ol' guajolote When I was a child growing up in Kentucky, it was segregated. I feel very lucky that my parents were members of a Unitarian Fellowship. Not a church for goodness sakes! The thought of a minister and a church scared those pesky activists.
I owe so much to the kindness and patience of the black people from my childhood. I will never forget that.
Attending the March on Frankfort was my sister's idea. And I can never forget that.
