Monday is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which means kids have the day off from school.
It's easy to treat it as just an extension of the weekend, but I wanted to encourage readers to get involved in any number of service projects and celebrations in the community.
I shared five ways for families to mark the day last week. NaShonda Cooke wrote about her own childhood experiences celebrating the day (King gave Cooke's mom a doughnut!) and shared details about a big event in Durham on Monday.
We also list five movies for families that honor King's legacy, including "Hidden Figures," pictured above, which I highly recommend.
