The Midnight Hour, So Dark, So Seemly, Martin Luther King Jr.

“Which of you who has a friend will go to him at midnight and say to him, “Friend, lend me three loaves; for a friend of mine has arrived on a journey, and I have nothing to set before him”?

LUKE 11:5–6 (RSV)”

This essay by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King takes us back 56 years, "A Knock At The Midnight Hour”. It is said the midnight hour is the darkest of times in human existence. It is said to be a time of darkness and despair.
In America and the question asked by Dr. King is still relevant today is, who will answer the door for humanity's sake because our communities have been in the midnight hour seemingly for 53 years since Dr. King’s murder in Memphis on April 4, 1968.
