For A King Celebrate

 

The world was given a gift 84 years ago when Rev. Martin Luther King Sr. and Alberta Williams King gave birth to Martin Luther King, Jr.  The life and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr is recognized by men and women, young and old, people of every creed and color. Dr. King was an advocate for justice, equality, and peace for all mankind.
