A packed house remembered Martin Luther King Jr. Monday at the Atlanta church where he preached his message of justice and civil rights. Led by his older sister and his daughter, the service mixed spiritual messages with political ones in celebrating the icon who would’ve turned 83 Sunday. The key message was that there’s still work to do.
Across the state and the country people celebrated Martin Luther King’s birth with a national day of service. That includes President Barack Obama who spent the day painting a middle school in the nation’s capitol. In Athens hundreds of volunteers turned out to help clean up a historic black cemetery.
