Martin Luther King Jr. Day Google Logo

Every year on Martin Luther King Jr. day in the United States, Google has a special Google Doodle, logo, for the day. Often it is a picture of Martin Luther King Jr. behind a podium speaking, representing his "I Have a Dream" speech. Not different this year.

The Google Doodle page explains:

Today's doodle honors Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a Baptist minister, community activist, philosopher and humanitarian. His leadership of the American Civil Rights movement, Nobel Peace Prize for non-violent civil disobedience in the face of racial injustice, and eventual martyrdom for the cause, cements his place as a hero for peace and justice worldwide.

One of his most powerful tools was his ability to communicate poignant truths in beautiful and moving speeches, which guest artist Richie Pope highlighted in our doodle today. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. moved our country forward by committing to bettering the lives of American citizens, no matter their race. He told us, "Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase." Today we're inspired to keep working towards a better future with grace and optimism.

Of course, clicking on the doodle leads to search results about the man.
