On this day: In 1929, civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. was born in Atlanta Georgia. This entire weekend we celebrate his leadership, vision, and sacrifice for his equal rights for his people. His legacy will always be remembered for his fight against racism. He was an advocate for a universal basic income and end to militarism. He received a Nobel Peace prize in 1964. It’s sad to have the MLK Jr Holiday weekend in overshadowed by the violence of last week with the siege on the Capitol in Washington, DC. Even though his birthday is today we celebrate all weekend and observe the National Holiday on Monday January 19, 2021
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Would Have Been 92 Today
