In the United States, we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, every third Monday in January.
Dr. King was a civil rights leader who promoted nonviolent activism, and not only successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law, but he created change at a deeper level, in favor of just treatment to African Americans in a society that resisted equality.
The iconic, charismatic leader was born on January 15, 1929, in Atlanta GA and killed on April 4, 1968, but his legacy prevails.
“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.”
– Martin Luther King Jr.
