MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. PARADE & COMMEMORATIVE pROGRAM

MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. PARADE & COMMEMORATIVE PROGRAM

  

                                                   WHY WE CELEBRATE MLK DAY


Celebrated on the third Monday in January, Martin Luther King Day, a national holiday celebrated the third Monday in January, honors America’s most famous civil-rights activist, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a Baptist minister. Dr. King gained national attention when he led a nonviolent boycott protesting segregation laws that required blacks to sit in the back of the bus. His speech “I Have a Dream” given before a quarter million people during the march on Washington, D.C. became famous and is repeated by many to this date. At 35, he became the youngest man to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. Dr. King was shot by an assassin April 4, 1968in Memphis, Tennessee while protesting poverty and unjust rights for people of color.  His struggle paved the way for the rights that many enjoy today. For the FREEDOM and OPPORTUNITIES he afforded us, we celebrate the legacy and the torch he left behind.
