Martin Luther King Jr.

A King Family Tribute

On January 15, 2013, Martin Luther King Jr. would have celebrated his eighty-fourth birthday. For a great many reasons, his absence is felt by all, but nowhere more profoundly than in the homes and hearts of his family.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Honoring an American Hero

This Monday, as is every third Monday in January, marks the occasion of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, a federal holiday that honors the birth of a great community-minded and civil rights fighting leader. Dr. King led the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott, along with the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, where he delivered one of the most important speeches in American History, titled I Have a Dream to over 200,000 Civil Rights supporters on the steps of The Lincoln Memorial. While Dr. King was known for being a beloved Baptist Reverend and a prolific orator, many don’t know about the personal side of King, or the type of person that he was outside the public eye.
