Today’s Special Occasion: Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

It's January 16, and today the United States is observing the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  As we've said many times before in this blog, one way to make history come alive while you take online high school courses, high school correspondence courses and online middle school courses is to visit museums, libraries or other historic sites.  If you're in Atlanta, you can visit the King Center to learn more about Dr. King.  If you can't make it to Atlanta, many people do service projects today to commemorate Dr. King's life, and you can learn more about these by visiting the United States Government's official site.
