MLK Georgia

Roses sit in front of the eternal flame at the gravesite of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., as kindergarten students with the Charles R. Drew Charter School pay a visit, Friday, Jan. 17, 2014, in Atlanta. The national Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. federal holiday this year is Monday, Jan. 20, five days after the civil rights leader would have turned 85-years-old. On the local front, a celebration was held at Manhattan Town Center Mall two days after the Community-wide celebration was held Saturday night in the Gymnasium at Flint Hills Christian School.
