Today (Monday 1/19) we observe the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and his Quest for #Equality
Martin Luther King, Jr. was instrumental in getting the Civil Rights Act of 1964 passed. That law made it illegal to treat people differently because of the color of their skin. In 1964 he won the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts. That same year, he was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee. Our country is celebrating his birthday on January 19.
Check out these resources, activities, and lesson plans to learn more about him and the quest for equality:
