Today is a day set aside to remember Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and next month, February, is African American History month.
"Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed."
Potter inspires me, not only because he became the most successful American magician of his time but also because of the humble beginnings from which he came. Yet, he was able to travel two continents and achieve so much in just 52 years of life.
More can be read about the history of great African American magicians in the book, Magical Heroes: The Lives and Legends of Great African American Magician by Jim Magus or enjoy fascinating stories about other early American performers including Potter in Charles J. Pecorís book, The Magician on the American Stage, 1752-1874.
Next month letís remember and honor our African American friends and heroes, while this week, let us remember Dr. King's message and honor ourselves, our own heritage, and the beauty of all people.
I am so very proud to be your friend and look forward to hearing from you soon.

A new illusion shows how our perception of objects changes as soon as they start moving.
