Martin Luther King Day, Monday, January 19, 2015

TriCities News/Herald Courier/Tom Netherland, Special, 1/18/15.  

....  "Born Michael Luther King Jr. on Jan. 15, 1929, he later changed his name to Martin en route to changing the world.

“He was sent from God,” said Jimmy Carter of the gospel group the Blind Boys of Alabama.
King served as co-pastor of Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church from 1960 until this death while alter-nately serving the downtrodden and debased amid his quest for civil and equal rights for all.

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character,” said King so famously and poignantly."  Read article.
