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 civil rights movement that transformed our nation.
Use Freedom's Feast resources to help you discover how Dr. King and ordinary citizens overturned key elements of centuries of brutal prejudice and segregation. Explore how you too can be a change-maker through service. Dr. King showed us that change is possible. Yet systemic racism and its many injustices remain. We have a long way to go to make good on our nation's founding promises. We hope that Dr. King's lessons and the examples of the many who joined him will inspire you to continue the work.
