I’m pleasantly surprised to report that I still get notes from readers of Letters from New Orleans who have only recently discovered the book, and enjoyed it enough to tell me so. One such note came across the transom yesterday, and the writer asked if I had in fact done anything about the idea mentioned in the book to create a kind of “open source” project related to Martin Luther King Jr. Blvds (and Drives and Avenues and Streets).
As you may know, the answer is yes. But maybe you don’t know! Here is: The MLK BLVD Flickr Pool. And find highlights from that pool at the MLK BLVD blog — images from MLKs in 42 cities and towns, and counting.
Better yet, join in and contribute something.
