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.
