King was born on January 15th, 1929. He was murdered on April 4, 1968.
This Monday, January 21st, 2008, is a national holiday to recognize the work and the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. But this official recognition had to be fought for by activists for many years. Many U.S. government staff won’t have to work because of this holiday. One way our elected lawmakers can honor King, and the citizens they work for, is by passing legislation that raises the minimum wage, offers health care and college education to all, protects the human rights of its citizens, and keeps guns out of kids hands.
