Most, if not all of us will use today to catch up on the things we do not get in our hectic modern schedules. But all of us should stop, even if just for 10-15 minutes, and do something to respect the legacy of the man today is dedicated to. I have included some articles/videos below that I read this morning for any of you who would like to do something to honor MLK's legacy who did not already have a plan. Or go out and seek your own way to respect the legacy, to learn, or to give back/contribute to your community...
"Civil Rights and the 1950s"
(US History Crash Course #39)
"Teaching MLK's Life - The Man, Not the Myth"
"Confederate Flags Removal Turns King's Day into a Celebration"
(from Time Magazine)
"Letter from a Birmingham Jail still resonates" (from NPR)
