“A Day On, Not a Day Off!”- Celebrating the legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

In celebration of Dr. King’s Birthday I wanted to share some of my favorite speeches from him as well as a few films, documentaries, and television series that feature his life and legacy. I wanted to make sure I shared some hidden gems, along with a few speeches and films that I have learned about through my time as a student and now professor. Check them out below:
