Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Since 1986 Martin Luther King day has been celebrated as a federal holiday in honor of one of the most influential and effective leaders of the American civil rights movement. And what better way to spend your day off than taking a little time to reflect on the long story of America’s struggle toward equality, past and present. The Press has published a comprehensive list of books on civil rights in America, covering everything from the life of Martin Luther King’s mentor Bayard Rustin, to more contemporary views on African-American citizenship.

Happy MLK day!
