Some links of interest in the closing hour of MLK day

First, Lee Bey talks about the property that once was home to Dr. King when he lived in Chicago to advance the Civil Rights cause up here in the north. That residence has since been torn down however today another residential building currently sits in it's place.

Also YoChicago reflects on MLK day with an accompanying video from the Chicago Tribune marking Dr. King's stay in Chicago.

Curbed, looks at the homes of not only MLK, but the homes of other Civil Rights leaders.

The Tribune has a story about CPS students having a day of service on MLK day. It includes a picture from Englewood's Stagg Elementary School @ 7424 South Morgan Avenue. Well that seems a long way from what I really think of as Englewood. Anyway...

The Sun-Times answers the question as to who helped to make Dr. King's birthday a national holiday.

Now in closing, how did you observe the MLK holiday this year?
