Today we honor Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for his resiliency, courage, and leadership through the Civil Rights Movement.

Today is a day to celebrate Dr. King's life, but it is also a day to reflect on how we can be better leaders, better allies, and to help ensure that we live in a just and caring community.

We also honor author, civil rights leader, and wife of MLK, Coretta Scott King, for whom this day would not be recognized without her work and the establishment of the The King Center.
