All the ways you can celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
With the holiday on Monday, check out these events throughout the weekend.
To honor his 91st birthday, Detroiters everywhere are preparing to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. Dr. King was born January 15, 1929. The celebration of his birthday first became a national holiday in 1986 with the help of the late U.S. Representative John Conyers. Now, the country honors Dr. King, his life and legacy annually on the third Monday of January.
