Monday, January 21, 2019 is Martin Luther King Jr Day – a national holiday. Observing the holiday, Wake Tech College is closed on Monday and there are no ESL classes.
Martin Luther King Jr was an important figure in the American civil rights movement and worked for equal rights for all. He believed in the power of ordinary people using nonviolent acts of resistance such as boycotts to influence major social change. Most of all, he believed in the right of all people, no matter their background, to live side by side in our society with equal rights and dignity.
His words still have a profound meaning in our current times and continue to inspire us.
