Happy Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day! [VIDEO]
Dr. Martin Luther King didn’t just talk the talk, he walk the walk and even died for what he believed in. His dream called for racial equality, social justice, an integrated and unified America and economic opportunity for ALL. He was a man of great integrity and the youngest to ever receive the Nobel Peace Prize.
Join 107 JAMZ Monday morning at 9am as we celebrate his life with those who knew him best, his family friends. 107 JAMZ and US Agencies presents King: A Musical Tribute The Man And His Legacy don’t miss it! This year I plan on taking my family to see the King Memorial and highly suggest you try and go yourself. By the way, if you haven’t had the opportunity to visit the King center in Atlanta, you gotta go. It’s unbelievable. That would also make for fabulous family trip.
Meanwhile, momentum is building for the annual Martin Luther King Day of Service, as thousands of organizations across the country put the finishing touches on volunteer projects to bring Americans together to serve their neighbors and advance Dr. King’s dream.
With the King Holiday upon us, the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) is urging Americans to visit MLKDay.gov and find volunteer opportunities in their communities and make MLK Day a DAY ON, NOT OFF. Projects will take place in all 50 states, including weatherizing homes, beautifying schools, serving meals and supporting veterans and military families.
Happy Martin Luther King Day Holiday to all of you!
