Martin Luther King Jr. Day is globally being remembered today the January 15th by major hip-hop moguls and other people from different walks of life as they pay homage to the noted civil rights leader.
Dr. King, who was assassinated on April 4, 1968 while in Memphis, Tennessee, dedicated his life to the civil rights movement and the progression of people of color. Today would’ve been his 89th birthday if he had lived to experience the moment.
From Diddy to Barack Obama, Master P, Common, and a number of public figures used social media to applaud Dr. King for his service and the progress he made in his lifetime.
