MLK, Jr. Day - listen to speeches
If you're like me, for many years growing up, you remember this day as one where the only mention of Martin Luther King, Jr. was a one minute segment on the news where they'd play the "I have a dream" portion of MLK's "March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom" speech. It has become popularly called the "I have a dream" speech, but there is so much power and content in that speech when you listen to the whole thing.
