Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

This Monday, Americans will pause to remember the tireless work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who dedicated his life to advancing civil rights and justice for African-Americans and other marginalized groups throughout the United States.

In honor of Dr. King, many Americans will take the day to volunteer in their communities. Serve Illinois, a state commission tasked with increasing volunteerism, offers information on a multitude of volunteer opportunities across the state.

We remember the timeless words of Dr. King -- many you've heard before and probably many you haven't. We encourage you to visit the Digital Archive of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, where you can find speeches, letters, and an array of other content by and about Dr. King.
