Martin Luther King Jr. Day

In observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, federal establishments and banks are closed including where I work at. Since we don't observe this holiday in the Philippines, I don't really know who Martin Luther King is. I even mistake him as "Martin Luther", the German Theologian who was popularly known as the Father of Protestanism. It was hubby that told me that they are two different individuals, though the latter has some kind of influence on the lives of the former. I did some research and I found out a little about this guy. MLK was an African American clergyman, activist, and prominent leader in the American civil rights movement. He would always be remembered as a strong leader, a person who believed in peace and justice, and had won more freedom for black Americans. Each year, on the third Monday in January, we celebrate his birthday. This is the first national holiday to honor an individual black American.
