Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was born on this day in 1929. King was an African-American minister who led massive, peaceful demonstrations leading to the passage of the Civil Rights Act ending racial discrimination in the U.S. in 1964. He was named Time magazine’s “Man of the Year” and awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

At this website provided by the U.S. National Parks Service, you can take a free virtual tour of the home where Martin Luther King was born.

When you get to the website you’ll see a map of the home.  Click on any room and a photograph will appear in the screen, along with text that describes what you are seeing and provides some historical background. Use your mouse to look around the room, or use the controls to zoom in and out.

Monday is a national holiday in honor of Dr. King’s birthday. There will be no ClickSchooling messages on Monday.  Messages will resume on Tuesday, January 18th.
