January 19th – Make it a Day on, Not a Day off!
Posted by hannah.cherry
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. changed the course of history and inspired us to build what he called “the beloved community.” The King Legacy of Service 25th Anniversary video tells the story of how Dr. King’s birthday evolved into a national day of service. Featuring civil rights luminaries such as Congressman John Lewis, Reverend Dr. Joseph Lowery, and Ruby Bridges, the 7-minute video reminds us of the importance of keeping Dr. King’s legacy of service alive and challenges us to make service a part of our lives ─ everyday of the year.
