Greater Philadelphia King Day of Service

King Day Events in the U.S.A

Posted on Updated on

Martin Luther King Jr. is a direct reason as to why many of  us enjoy multi-culturalism.  Although often forgotten, Blacks were not the only ones involved in the march on Washington.  It was a collective movement of support for King to press through the barriers of racism toward the liberties we enjoy today not only in the Americas but the ripple effect touched the world. Some people percieve the observation of the holiday as an African American holiday only. Have you ever had a teacher or mentor of a different race become a catlyst of  inspiration in your life? Take a look at that best friend that you may have of a different race that you love like a brother or sister and know this holiday is truly a Multi-Cultural celebration. - Crystal A.
