Martin Luther King Day is not just another day of in the month of January. Martin Luther King Day, in my opinion, is not just a day to support MLK but also, all of the Civil Rights Workers that came before, during, and after the Civil Rights Movement. While at the University of Florida (www.ufl.edu) one of the best classes I took was the Civil Rights Movement with Dr. Brian Ward. This was an eye opening and insightful class in terms of learning about the Civil Rights Movement from 1954-1964. There were many individuals of many different colors, races, and religions that participated in and assisted in the Civil Rights Movement.
As a result of my education and life experience, Martin Luther King Day is a day for us to take time and remember all of the individuals who aided and supported the Civil Rights for African Americans and one of those individuals was Martin Luther King, Jr.
