Martin Luther King, Jr., Resources

21 January 2008 by Kate Zoellner

The Martin Luther King, Jr., National Holiday is celebrated today to honor the life and vision of civil rights leader Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929-April 4, 1968). Below are links to some resources available to help you learn more about Dr. King:

• There are many books, videos, and government documents at the Mansfield Library on Martin Luther King, Jr.
Citizen King, a website supplement to the PBS American Experience documentary of the same title (available at the library), provides background information, historic video clips, timelines, and teacher resources on Dr. King.
• The Department of Education provides teaching resources via the Federal Resources for Educational Excellence (FREE) website.
• The National Endowment for the Humanities provides background information on the holiday and teaching resources via the EDSITEment project.

Public Law 98-144, signed on November 2, 1983, designates the third Monday of every January as Martin Luther King, Jr., Day. This day offers a time for reflection on the principles of racial equality and nonviolent social change Dr. King practiced and called others to follow.
