Honoring Martin Luther King, Jr. at the Clubs

January 21st, 2014

Martin Luther King Day of Service was designated by Congress in 1994 transforming the holiday into a National Day of Service. They ask for volunteers to take part in a day that keeps alive the legacy of service in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

To honor this year's MLK Day of Service, Club members at Paul I. Phillips watched Martin Luther King, Jr.'s “I Have a Dream” speech. Afterwards, we posed them this question: “What would Martin Luther King Jr. take a picture of if he had a smart phone?” They thought about what would be important enough for him to record and share with the world if he were alive today. What do you think???

Other Club members wrote letters to veterans thanking them for their service, made "I Have a Dream" mobiles, and wrote and read aloud "I Have a Dream" speeches.
