MLK —- Hrant Dink

I’ve been in Istanbul for a Res Artis board meeting and some down time this past week.  I was here on Martin Luther King day … I thought a lot about this, especially when I was reminded of the assassination of the journalist/editor, Hrant Dink in Istanbul.  Dink, Turkish of Armenian descent, was killed by a young Turkish nationalist on January 19, 2007.  There is now a foundation in his name that works to continue his work advocating Turkish-Armenian reconciliation and human and minority rights in Turkey.  There is also the King Center in Atlanta, Georgia.
