A new ad series from The Atlantic promoting their history of “challenging assumptions” is fantastically well done. And I’m not just saying it because one of them featured Michael K. Williams.
I can’t get enough of this ad from Foot Locker featuring Russell Westbrook. So well written.
This series never disappoints.
First, I must confess that over the last few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Council-er or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action;" who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a "more convenient season. Shallow understanding from people of goodwill is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will. Lukewarm acceptance is much more bewildering than outright rejection.Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., April 16, 1963
I love this Nike ad. I just wish it wasn’t… an ad.
There will never be another one like him.
In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Business art is the step that comes after art. I started as a commercial artist, and I want to finish as a business artist. Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art. During the hippie era people put down the idea of business. They’d say 'money is bad' and 'working is bad'. But making money is art, and working is art — and good business is the best art.Andy Warhol
