Happy Birthday Dr. King!


As a student at Howard University, I remember well the day the 2nd historic March on Washington happened.  It was arctic cold and Dr. King’s birthday was still not recognized like the national holiday we know today.  There were a few states holding out, so the March on Washington happened spearheaded by Stevie Wonder who penned s song for the occasion.

Ironically enough, it was President Ronald Reagan who signed the bill into existence on November 2, 1983 with his widow Coretta Scott King present for this historic occasion.




In celebration of Dr. King and his legacy, here is a list of films chronicling the life of this man along with his famous speeches “Mountaintop” and “I Have a Dream”
