Discovery employees had the day off yesterday, but Mousey wanted to still make an appearance this week in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Martin Luther King, Jr. was born on January 15, 1929. His leadership for the community against racism through nonviolent campaigns moved hundreds of thousands of people. He is most famously known for his timeless “I Have a Dream” speech delivered at the March on Washington, August 28, 1963. In 1964, Martin Luther King, r. was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. On April 4, 1968, Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated and the whole nation mourned his untimely death.. In 1983, the third Monday in January was designated a federal legal holiday in honor of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday to celebrate his life and his principles.
