25th Anniversary of the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday
Plus, it's the 17th Anniversary for this Day to be a 'National Day of Volunteer Service' honoring Martin Luther King Jr., effective in 1994! Which is why I'm bringing 'Create The Good' to Your Attention today!

The comic book shown above was published in 1956 by The Fellowship of Reconciliation. To my knowledge that is the oldest comic book with MLK on the cover.
This comic book had an English printing of 250,000 copies, and a Spanish version of 125,000 copies. They were used for teaching tools about the civil rights movement.
The graphic novel shown near the bottom right of this post is 'King' by Ho Che Anderson.
TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3326:
Today, January 17th of 2011, marks the 25th Anniversary of the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday.
The Day was also designated as a 'national day of volunteer service' by Congress in 1994, which I'm sure not too many Americans are aware of.
However, many Americans do honor the civil rights leader's legacy by engaging in volunteer services.
If YOU don't know how or where to volunteer your services today, or later on this week, you could check out this Facebook Fan Page: Create The Good!
