Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a son of the South. We can listen to him in Sweden accepting the Nobel Prize for Peace, standing in a junior high school in Philadelphia telling teenagers to believe in themselves, or talking to students and faculty at CAL TECH out west. We know he made it to a mall in Washington DC. But, all but one of those memories take research to find and remember for the next time. Whether we were 4 years old or 40 years old in the 1960s, we need no reminders of Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia and Tennessee. We remember Martin Luther (born, Michael) King as a son of the South.
"The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here...." I don't know why that's the portion of President Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address that I can always remember. Maybe it is the way of it with most momentous events. It's definitely the case with the Memphis Sanitation Workers' Strike and its link to the creation of MLK DAY as the national holiday our country pauses for every third Monday in January.
Google MLK DAY and under THE HISTORY OF MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. DAY, National Today's first line is
"The concept of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day as a holiday was promoted by labor unions."
