Today; January 16, 2017; is the date this year we celebrate the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who was born on January 15, 1929.
He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolent civil disobedience.
We have a memorial in my hometown of Albany, NY, dedicated to MLK in Lincoln Park, right up the street from my home.
Hundreds of New York State (NYS) Capital Region residents come to honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s memory with speeches and songs.
This statue and memorial honors King’s commitment to human rights, nonviolence, and service to the community.
