Civic Value: Service
Celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day to honor the legacy of Dr. King, one of the twentieth century's great leaders. The son and grandson of preachers, Dr. King used non-violent protest to lead the African American civil rights movement that changed our nation. The brutal prejudice and segregation that he and his children knew had existed for centuries but changed over the course of a decade due to his vision and courage and the multitude of adults and children who joined him.
Freedom's Feast resources can help you to discover how Dr. King and ordinary citizens changed the course of history. Explore how you too can be a change-maker through service. The work that Dr. King began is not completed. There are still many injustices to overcome. Whatever you choose to add to your MLK Day observance, we hope you'll take some time this holiday to remember Dr. King's inspiring lessons.
