Tonight my guest co-host JoNah Daryous Sawyers and I will be sharing facts and ways to have your younger children learn about MLK too as well as share events going that you can be apart of in MD. Civil Rights Day is an alternative name for the national holiday named after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Certain states have chosen to celebrate the same holiday under both names in order to celebrate civil rights as a whole, including all of the contributions made by activists during the 1960s and beyond. Like Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Civil Rights Day occurs every third Monday in January. Martin Luther King, Jr. is one of the most notable figures in the history of human rights. He is recognized as the leading activist during the Civil Rights Movement, which hit its peak during the 1960s. King is credited with forming the largest campaigns to promote racial equality and desegregation. He was also the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. King was assassinated in 1968, but his work hasn’t been forgotten. Activists continued with King’s work after his death, but they also wanted him to be remembered on a much larger scale. An idea soon circled about creating a holiday to coincide with his birthday, which was January 15th. It took many years for the idea to come together to create a national holiday. In 1983, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day officially became a federal holiday after President Ronal Reagan signed it into law. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is a national holiday, which means that all government offices and public schools are closed in observance.

SATURDAY MORNING WAKE UP CALL
Topic for the Day: Civil Rights 50 Years Later
Today, in Washington DC, a nationwide coalition of civil rights groups is marching on the United States Capitol to call for legislation against discrimination by police and torture in the wake of the release of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on the CIA’s post-9/11 torture program.
Fifty years ago -- in 1964 -- Dr. Martin Luther King was in n Oslo on December 10 for presentation of the Nobel Peace Award by Norway's King Olav. Dr. King accepted the Award not for himself, but as the representative of the Freedom Movement as a whole, saying in his Acceptance Speech: "I come as a trustee, for in the depths of my heart I am aware that this prize is much more than an honor to me personally... [It is]...not for myself alone but for those devotees of nonviolence who have moved so courageously against the ramparts of racial injustice and who in the process have acquired a new estimate of their own human worth. Many of them are young and cultured. Others are middle aged and middle class. The majority are poor and untutored. But they are all united in the quiet conviction that it is better to suffer in dignity than to accept segregation in humiliation. These are the real heroes of the freedom struggle: they are the noble people for whom I accept the Nobel Peace Prize."
