Civil Rights Celebrated on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day [VIDEO]

Many Americans will be focused on Washington, but the President isn’t the only person being celebrated today.

FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig reports:

Audio clip:

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was signed into law by President Ronald Reagan 30 years ago this year.

(King, Jr.) “I still have a dream.  It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.”

This year also marks the 50th anniversary of King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, delivered August 28th, 1963.

(King, Jr.) “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.  I have a dream today.”

Banks and government offices are closed today.
