I wonder if your university was trying to grab the attention of your local hipsters. Seems to be the only group of people those posters wouldn't be lost on.
But, in my opinion, unless you're under the age of 12, you should have a pretty significant grasp of who King is and what happened during his lifetime. I'm not really sure anyone outside of the generations directly affected by segregation really care how it happened, all they care about are the benefits of it happening. It's a shame and I really hope that isn't true but if I hear one more person exclaim "Wooohooo thanks for taking a bullet so I can get the day off" I might just end up going insane. /end emotion-filled rant
