Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Civil Rights Leader

No person in the entire history of African America has made as great an impact on the nation as did Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. – a preacher, civil rights advocate, moral leader, idealist and realist.  Since many young people had not yet been born during Dr. King’s lifetime, and may be too young to remember, it is our duty as a community of parents and educators to teach our children of the life and work of Dr. King.  May his legacy to ensure equality continue to live on.
