Owlkids intern, Taylor, is here to tell us about an important day!
Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was an American civil rights leader who wanted equality for everyone. He believed in peaceful protest, and organized events and gave speeches to support his cause.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day falls on his birthday. If Dr. King were still alive today, he would be turning 90 years old!
Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a special time to remember him and celebrate the things he believed in, like equality and peace. You can do this every day by learning more about him and sharing your new knowledge with your friends, or making sure you are treating everyone fairly and equally.
