Martin Luther King Jr. Day -Just a black holiday!?

Martin Luther King Day of  Service kick-off starts this weekend (January 19-20 - to find out what MLK Day of Service is CLICK HERE!). Many colleges, universities and individuals around the country take this time to recognize one of the greatest American heroes by having concerts, banquets and hosting small events. For those who are unaware of who Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was, MLK was an American clergyman and prominent leader in the African American Civil Rights Movement. He was a  powerful leader in America and helped to create equality between blacks and whites. Unfortunately, Martin Luther King, who was born on January 15th, 1929, died an early death on April 6th 1968 when he was assassinated by a man named James Earl Ray while standing on the second floor balcony of his room at the Lorraine Hotel in Memphis Tennessee. Although MLK was a sensation while he was alive, he never had the opportunity to truly see the impact that he made in America. While America still has a long journey ahead when it comes to equality and human rights, Martin Luther King helped tremendously improving the quality of life for many.


Today, Martin Luther King is forever honored by many people. Unfortunately, many do not participate in this celebration of life because it is often seen as only a "black" holiday. Although he was titled as an African American leader, King's dreams of equality went further than black and white. His dedication was not only to help out many black and African Americans, but it was also clear that he desired peace among everyone, regardless of the color of their skin. In his most famous "I Have a Dream" speech, King clearly points out his love for human beings:

"The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to a distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny. They have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We cannot walk alone" -Martin Luther King Jr.

Regardless of where you have come from or what country you live in, it is time to recognize that black, white, Native American, Hispanic, and Asian history is YOUR history as well. Many of the strongest advocates and leaders throughout this world had a mission and most of their work was done to unite people. Separation was the exact opposite of what Martin Luther King Jr. wanted to accomplish. So for today and for the rest of your life, recognize that the history of your brother, whoever they may be, IS YOUR HISTORY....
