FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE July 17, 2013 Contact: Leslie Palma Leslie@priestsforlife.org (347) 286-7277 While I salute the passion and creativity of artist Nikkolas Smith in reference to the image of MLK wearing a hoodie, I feel compelled to cry “foul, shame on you” to the media moguls and civil rights legends who want to stir up a controversy where there is none.
