On historic days like today when everyone is posting about the same topic, I most of all love seeing the different interpretations of history and learning even more about my city. Here are 10 of my favorite odes to Martin Luther King Jr. from some amazing locals and businesses that are worth checking out.

Today in #HipHopHistory: #HappyBDayPitbull! #Miami's own #ArmandoChristianPerez (born January 15, 1981), known by the stage name #Pitbull or #MrWorldwide, is a rapper, singer, actor and record producer. His first recorded mainstream performance was on a solo track from #LilJon's 2002 album #KingsofCrunk. In 2004, @Pitbull released his debut album M.I.A.M.I. under TVT Records. It included production producers Lil Jon and #JimJonsin. Pitbull later released his second album #ElMariel, in 2006 and his third, #TheBoatlift, in 2007. His fourth album, #Rebelution (2009), included his breakthrough hit single "#IKnowYouWantMe (#CalleOcho)", which peaked at number two on the US Billboard Hot 100. Pitbull's 2011 album #PlanetPit, featured the single "#GiveMeEverything", which was his first US number-one single. His 2013 track "#Timber" from his Meltdown EP topped the charts in twenty nations, including the US and UK. He performed the song "#WeAreOne (Ole Ola)" along with #JenniferLopez and Claudia Leitte, which served as the official theme of the 2014 #FIFA #WorldCup. Growing up, he was influenced by the #MiamiBass genre and has cited #CeliaCruz and #WillyChirino as sources of inspiration for his music. He attended South Miami Senior High School before graduating from Miami Coral Park High School, where he focused his career on rapping. #classichiphop #hiphop #miamilife #mr305 #dadecounty #miamihistory

Settled in the modern era of the mid-19th century by pioneers, the now dense urban core of #Brickell #Miami grew to become Millionaire’s Row after #construction of lavish mansions in the early 20th century by Mary Brickell. It wasn’t until the 1970s that Brickell saw its first #office towers, #hotels and #apartments and it was only up from there. ⏫

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was known throughout the world as a figure of peace. Born on January 15, 1929, in Atlanta, he organized marches and protests toward ending racial injustice and inequality. On August 28, 1963, his “I Have a Dream” speech during the March on Washington challenged the United States to adhere to the ideals of the Declaration of Independence. Dr. King said, “I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.’" While this speech is widely known throughout the world, many do not know he delivered an early version of it in Miami at the Historic Hampton House.

While Dr. King was known for his frequent stops throughout the South, he visited Miami quite often throughout the 1950s and 1960s to teach nonviolent resistance and to organize marches. Although Dr. King was assassinated in 1968, his legacy and work in the community are still evident. In 1977, Miami became the first U.S. city to organize a Martin Luther King Jr. Day Parade which was founded by Preston Marshall of Overtown. Marshall, who died in 2015, met with Dr. King several times during the civil rights movement and was appointed by President Ronald Reagan to join the founding committee that established Dr. King’s birthday as a national holiday. Aside from the parade, the city also honored Dr. King by naming a road after him; a portion of NW 62nd Street in Liberty City is known as Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Also, on that street, at NW 7th Avenue, is the late Oscar Thomas’ mural “Prince of Peace." Today, we commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. King, a man who paid the highest price to ensure equality for all Americans.

Building 420 Lincoln Road is owned by Cuban-born Cejas, who moved to Miami in the 1960s, is well known for his three-year tenure as a U.S. ambassador to Belgium beginning in 1998. He also founded one of the country’s largest Hispanic-owned businesses, CareFlorida Health Systems, which was bought out by Foundation Health for $250 million in 1994. #miamibeach #miami #miamihistory #buildings

Miami Beach War Memorial, one of a few historical sites in South Florida, quite unusual combination of artillery and palm trees... I bet no one will find its location; guess it's understood...😎 #miami #memorial #warmonument #warmonuments #miamihistory #miamihistoric #miamibeach #stopwars #nowars #beachtime #beachnowar
Do you love Miami’s glorious winter weather? 🌴📸 @360val #miamiguide #miamilife Miami owes its founding partly to its great weather. Back in the late 1890s, Henry Flagler had intended to end his Florida East Coast Railway at West Palm Beach, 60 miles north of Miami. But after the great freeze ❄️ of 1894-95 decimated the Central Florida orange groves, Flagler was persuaded to extend his railroad to Miami by business woman Julia Tuttle, who sent him a bouquet of orange blossoms 🍊🌸 to proof that the freeze had not extended to Miami. Mrs. Tuttle, had a vision how Miami would be a thriving city unmatched anywhere in the world, where hundreds of thousands of people would live and visit. That #ladyboss Julia Tuttle had incredible foresight, didn’t she? 😊 #thisismiami #miamihistory #orangeblossom #floridawinter #miamibeachlife #southbeachmiami #oceandrive #miamiflorida

Now in its 41st year (and happening this weekend), the Art Deco Weekend celebrates one of the most unique clusters of historic Art Deco-style buildings in the world. Built between 1923 and 1943, the intricately designed buildings are most famous for their interesting exterior accents and vivid colors taking inspiration from the surrounding area. This building is just one of 800+ in the district. 
The one rule with Art Deco is... Don’t forget to look up!

My #hsp was on 10 as I "relived" Hurricane Andrew @historymiami on Saturday. It's an excellent exhibition! It closes on Sunday, Jan. 14, so go soon if you're interested! So many memories surfaced. It wasn't always pleasant. My friend, @tashanataylor, encouraged me to share my story, or something like that *wink*, so a couple of these pics are me doing that with the help of a 1990s-era overhead projector. Writing something quick helped me process some of what I was feeling. (Thanks, Ta-Shana! 🤗) I'm pretty sure I wrote something about Andrew for my high-school yearbook, but I can't seem to remember if I did for our school newspaper (gettin' old). I'll have to check (and I can check because I'm a #packrat like that, lol). In the last image of this set of pics, you'll see a white FPL T-shirt. I had one of those shirts. My mom, who worked for FPL at the time, gave it to me. Andrew was my first hurricane, but it certainly was not my last. I have been through five as of September 2017, when Irma hit us. I experienced three of those five within a 13-month window when I lived in West Palm Beach (2004 - Frances and Jeanne and 2005 - Wilma). No, it was not fun. #isurvivedandrew #miamistrong #carolcitystrong #classof93 #carolcitychiefs #HistoryMiami #floridanative #miaminative #miamihistory #floridahistory #dadecounty #305 #lovemiami #lovefl #idontlovehurricanesatall #january

December ‘17 - one year in Miami. I never dreamt of staying in Miami so cannot say a dream come true. But definitely can say an unexpected awesome part of my life. 
Miami is known for its beaches and the happening life but the city is much more than that. The city is about culture. It has been part of many historical events. It has dedicated itself to art and music. Artists from the world owns the city. The city has been a host to the world’s largest music festival.
But if I need to choose one best thing about the city, it has to be the food. Be it bakery or cafe, fine dining or local eateries, seafood or fresh catch, desserts or cocktails Miami will give you the best of its kind.
So all #travelers who are yet to visit #miami make sure you have it in your wishlist 😃😃

I spotted this gibberish on one of the support legs for the axis 3 assembly from the opposite side of the pit and had to go look. Derp! Thats my handwriting! Its the wiring order to the axis motor assembly. We had to get it serviced years ago at Barfield Aviation and they did us the amazing favor of rebuilding it for free. This kept the machine running for quite a few extra years.

Right there in the middle of the room in plain site was a cubbyhole of mechanical geekiness many had never peered into. This is the support and mechanism that turned the entire machine, axis 1. This was located in the center pit of the planetarium flanked off by 70's looking Formica barriers.

What you see is the mechanism that turned the machine, center support assembly, and vast amounts or wiring that ran down there. The paper towel on the gear was me turning it by hand to get to all the fasteners while trying not to get grease on everything.

Yesterday a small group of individuals joined a very small circle of those that have dismantled one of the world's most beautifully designed star projectors. 
4 of us lifted the beast using rigging reminiscent of something the Egyptians would have used and carefully brought her down. We loaded her on a special cart and off to the historymiami van she went. It was a strange feeling being there. We were relieved it was done but there was an unspoken sadness.

Taken yesterday when prepping to remove top assembly of star projector off yoke. The builders of the machine took some very obscure steps to guarantee it would never come apart even when structural fasteners came loose. This made for some unforseen delays.

You can see the harnesses that run up the yoke assembly pulled out. All those wires went through slip ring assemblies.

Check out my documentary and see the power of Jesus Christ! He delivered me from from a real dark world of gangs, I pray that many may see reality and repent when they see the consequences that come with that life. #TheWarriorLevel #Documentary #TheUntoldStoryOfMiami #MiamiHistory #GangsToGod

The Macy's in downtown Miami, once the site of Burdines' flagship store, is closing. The downtown location is one of 11 Macy's stores around the nation getting the axe. Long-time Miamians first knew the spot as Burdines, "The Florida Store," which opened its first downtown store in 1898. #macys #burdines #downtownmiami #vintagemiami #miamihistory #miami

Sign of the times: So sad to hear about the upcoming closing of Macy's in downtown Miami. It was announced today that the flagship store is one of 11 across the country on the chopping block. The historic family-run Burdines Department Store moved into the 5-story Art Deco building in 1912. In 1956, the store became part of Federated Stores Inc. and in 2005, the name was officially changed to Macy's. Despite the changes, this Miami icon remained a shining light in downtown, with its unique dining options, tropical fashions, and festive displays. It will always hold a special place in the hearts of Miamians and its visitors. 22 E Flagler Street will never be the same.

#TBT: Vizcaya opened for the first time as a public museum in 1935 and visitation has continued to rise steadily ever since. This past December, we welcomed a record-breaking 2,700+ visitors in just one day!

Excited to welcome many more visitors to this National Historic Landmark in 2018!

Closeup of Spitz analogs (what moved the planets), the motor assembly that tilted the machine (axis 2) and the slip rings.

One of the last pics we took this evening. You can see a part of the machine most folks didn't, axis 3. Axis 3 was the bottom motor that spun the entire machine as a unit. Its extremely robust as it was capable of spinning several hundred pounds of metal at dizzying speeds. The bottom of the starprojector is actually bolted to a subfloor about 2' down from rest of planetarium.

Removing star lamp gimbal mount from end of machine. The starlamps hung on gimbal mounts that not only allowed them to rotate 360deg but also carried power via slip rings.

Better shot of the inside of a starball. That's supposed to be flat black paint in there to stop light reflections. The intense UV from the starlamps ate it up.

Starballs on the floor. Those are what actually created the stars projected inside the dome. There's thousands of tiny little holes that created the star field. The insides look sunfaded because in essence they are. The lamps to produce the star fields emitted high levels of UV.

Starballs coming off the Spitz STP. Had to be tapped off as the paint between the two parts fused. Pics by Claudia Hernandez.

#TBT: 100 years ago, James Deering officially took residency at Vizcaya for Christmas. Paul Chalfin staged an elaborate ceremony to mark the occasion, complete with gondolas, cannons and Deering’s friends dressed in Italian peasant costumes.

Vizcaya's centennial year has come to a close! Thank you for celebrating this special year with us. Here's to 100 more! 🎉
