Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. changed the consciousness and character of America. With his urgent message of non-violence and justice for all Americans, King reached more people than any other African-American leader in history. In 1964, at thirty-five, Martin Luther King, Jr., was the youngest man to have received the Nobel Peace Prize.

Today, we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. and continue his work at the African American Historical and Cultural Museum of the San Joaquin Valley.
