Martin Luther King Jr. Day


Today is a national holiday, recognizing the contributions of Martin Luther King, Jr. to peace, freedom and Civil Rights. A lot of people think the civil rights era is long gone--ancient history. But there are those who keep the flame of civil rights and non-violent activism alive and well in the disability and activism communities.

Click on some of the links, and learn a bit more about MLK and what you can do to promote peace and justice at home.

His 'I have a dream' speech is one of the most moving I've ever heard.

I'll watch tv tonight, hoping to hear it again.

Peace to you, Arlene.
