Celebrating MLK Jr.

Today our country observes Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. I’m just going to be honest; I don’t know much about Reverend King. We didn’t study MLK Jr. when I was in high school; New York State didn’t make the 3rd Monday of January a holiday until 1983 (to really date myself, the year I graduated from high school). So, what I really know about MLK are the “obvious” things – his civil rights marches, Nobel Peace Prize, and his “I have a dream” speech.
