Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Each year on the third Monday of January we celebrate the birth, the life and the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

“I have a dream…
I have a dream that one day little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers
I have a dream today”

It is a time for the nation to remember the injustices that Dr. King fought. A time to remember his fight for the freedom, equality, and dignity of all races and peoples. A time to remember the message of change through nonviolence.

And I don’t think there is any more fitting testament to King’s legacy than the election of President Barack Obama. “I have a dream” indeed!

So visit our celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. for more on the man and the holiday. And check out the Video and Text of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” Speech. In its entirety.

    Honor to the memory of a man that made sacrifices. His answering God’s call made such a wonderful difference in the lives of many. The children at LATMA Christian Academy performed the play “Letter from A Birmingham Jail” by Covert. They did a remarkable job! We participated in a march sponsored by the Charmettes in Madison County Florida. The Unity, the Speaker, Pastor Spencer and the fellowship of racially diverse members of the community made a GREAT day! I know Dr. King would be happy.
