But last week, she remarked on how there was no school Monday because of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. "It's of great importance, for society, to know who Dr. King was, what he stood for and why those speeches were made".

The ensuing program highlighted the fact that while he was felled by an assassin's bullet in 1968, King's dream of equality for all continues to live on in the hearts of folks here and elsewhere.

A look at some of the most inspiring quotes from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "This is about relieving and remembering Dr. King and the others who laid their life on the line for what we have today". Day Celebration is focusing on this year, hence the "Be the Dream" theme for this year's event, which returns to the Chehalem Cultural Center Monday.

King became a civil rights activist and leader at a young age.

He campaigned against inequality throughout the South, including leading the 1955 Montgomery bus boycott. It's not uncommon for people to focus so much on planning and producing events to fill the day that we lose sight of why the holiday exists in the first place - honoring the groundbreaking work of an outstanding leader. A reading of King's "I Have a Dream" speech is set for 11:30 a.m.at the Water Stage, followed by a performance of the Oklahoma Collegiate Gospel Choir. King would also help with the 1962 and 1963 protests in Georgia and Alabama.

Bethany Green, assistance director for Student Engagement at UNA, said the event is an opportunity for students, faculty, staff and the community to come together and honor King while serving others.
