Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day– a.k.a. MLK Day. It’s a day to recognize a man who risked his life to see his children live in a nation built on equality.

Here’s what you need to know about today:

5️⃣ In 1979, Coretta King (widow of MLK) led the charge in honoring her husband’s memory by petitioning for a national holiday to be created in his name. She testified before a joint hearing of Congress and organized a nationwide lobby to support the King-holiday bill, but the bill was defeated in the House by just five votes.
