Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day: Ways to Honor His Legacy
There are many ways we can celebrate the legacy of this inspirational civil rights leader.
Parades and other public events may not take place this year, but acts of service and kindness will honor and show respect for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s achievements.
And if your schedule cannot accommodate a timed online event, you can remember Dr. King by watching one of the many movies and documentaries devoted to his life and work.
Try feature films like Ava DuVernay’s Selma, with David Oyelowo as King, or Clark Johnson’s Boycott. Documentaries include the new MLK/FBI and John Lewis: Good Trouble, both streaming as part of the Cinematters: NY Social Justice Film Festival, as well as King in the Wilderness, Eyes on the Prize, and King: A Filmed Record... Montgomery to Memphis—all available online.
