MLK Holiday – 2011

I have a tradition on this blog of writing a post on celebrating the Martin Luther King holiday (here, here, here, here (especially) and here). The holiday is special to me for a number of reasons that I go into in the earlier posts on the topic and it’s one of my favorite holidays of the year.

The holiday has always seemed to me to be a day for reflection. I like the way that many blogger point to primary materials and good resources, and the way that some bloggers draw lessons from their own unique perspectives,

Some posts I saw today that I liked:

On MLK Day: Put yourself in the shoes of a famous speaker – I had similar thoughts when standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on a trip to DC last October.
