MLK Birthday Observed on Twitter

Tuesday  marks the 84th birthday of the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Dr. King is best known and widely respected for his efforts in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. He is most notably recognized for his famous “I Have a Dream” speech that he gave on August 23, 1963 during a Washington D.C. Civil Rights March.

American society may still have a long way to go before we will have accomplished the goal set forth in that speech … However, without his efforts, many African-American working professionals (celebrity and non) may not be in the positions that they currently hold.

For that, many NBA players took time to recognize Dr. King on his birthday.
