Today marks the 36th Martin Luther King Jr. Day since the date was made a federal holiday in 1986. Today we remember the words of MLK and reflect on the fight for racial justice which he dedicated his life to, ultimately died for—and which still persists to the present day.
'MLK is the only individual who is honored on the National Mall who is not a president. We know so much about the words of Jefferson, Lincoln, Washington, and Roosevelt, but we don't know a whole lot about the words of King other than 'I Have a Dream,'' said Lerone A. Martin.
