Today is the day the United States commemorates Martin Luther King, Jr. birthday. Two days ago, January 15th, was his 82nd birthday. Martin Luther King, Jr. died on April 4, 1968 and I am sure everyone knows about his life. If for some reason you have not, please read his Wikipedia page.

Today, on there is a special logo for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
