For the last three years I have had the opportunity to send out a reminder to Mozilla staff that Martin Luther King Jr. Day is coming up, and that U.S. employees get the day off. It has turned into my MLK Day eve ritual. I read his letters, listen to speeches, and then I compose a belabored paragraph about Dr. King with some choice quotes.
If you didn’t get a chance to celebrate Dr. King’s legacy and the movements he was a part of, you still have a chance:
- Watch Selma.
- Watch The Black Power Mixtape (it’s on Netflix).
- Read A Letter from a Birmingham Jail (it’s really really good).
- Listen to his speech Beyond Vietnam.
- Listen to his last speech I Have Been To The Mountaintop.
