This Monday is Martin Luther King National Day of Service.   By helping others, you will honor the legacy of this great man.  During the century after the Civil War, African Americans remained segregated in the South.  There they were treated with prejudice, denied voting rights and even lynched.  This time was called the “Jim Crow” era.  Many African American leaders sought to overcome this.  One leader was Martin Luther King.  He was a minister who led hundreds of thousands of blacks to use civil protest to bring about change. He was killed in 1968, at the age of 39.  In 1994, the Federal Government made this a day of service.  It is not meant to be a holiday—but a day of thoughtful planned service to others.  Thank you, Dr. King for changing the world with your bravery!
