The third Monday of the month is set aside as Martin Luther King, Jr. Day to honor the civil rights leader born on January 15, 1929 who was assasinated on April 4, 1968.
Dr. King’s legacy lives on and is a testament to the fact that, while we may not always like our history, we should always remember it.
