MLK holiday celebrates liberty and justice for all
TUCSON -- I'll be out with my family today celebrating civil rights and remembering Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a great leader who made our nation better and more fair for all people.
Here is an interesting short history of MLK day as a national holiday, including what happened in Arizona.
In Arizona, the holiday enacted by voters is called 'Martin Luther King/Civil Rights Day', to honor not only the great Dr. King, but also the millions of people who joined the struggle for justice and continue to fight each day for liberty and justice for all.
