Honoring Martin Luther King Jr

March on Washington was led by 250,000 people. This massive protest for freedom and jobs was led by Dr.King. One man in the name of love (U2!).

Unity created the historical turning point. After this President Johnson signs the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965.

About 10 years ago, a college hired me to perform for their Martin Luther King Jr celebration. I was puzzled - why me? When I saw their program, my show 'Japanese Storytelling' was listed in the middle of the African American dancers, musicians and speakers. The theater director said "one of the things Dr.King dreamed was multi-culture society, and our program desires performances from different cultures..." Dr.King continues to inspire us and I hope we are getting closer to multi-culture society and "live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."

Origami is now a multi-culture passion and I want to show our Unity at Origami Air. And for the unity, we will fold Unit Origami that is made out of more than one piece, the Sonobe Unit. A simple 5 folds is the only folds you need. The rest is intuitive puzzle to enjoy, like Lego pieces to put together.
