Happy (Dr.)Martin Luther King Jr. Day!
❤✊🏾Today is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday.
The civil rights leader was born on Jan. 15, 1929, in Atlanta, Georgia. The young Baptist preacher led the Civil Rights Movement during the 1950s and ‘60s up until he was slain by an assassin on April 4, 1968.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a federal holiday held on the third Monday of January.
Many institutions across the country will close their doors to celebrate King’s birthday on the officially recognized holiday, Monday, Jan. 20.
We also encourage you to celebrate King’s life by learning more about him and the movement he led against racial segregation in the United States. One of the best ways to gain a deeper understanding of King is to listen to his many powerful speeches and read the books he authored, including “Why We Can’t Wait” and “Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?” On Sunday, Jan. 19, The Philadelphia Tribune will publish a special supplement on King and how his influence helped change America, a country still evolving when it comes to full racial equality. We encourage you to pick up a copy.
Today would have been King’s 91st birthday. His life and legacy should inspire us to continue to work for justice and equality in America.
Happy birthday, Dr. King! .
Celebration of Black Beauty, Excellence and Culture♥️✊ .
