January 15 is the birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a U.S. national holiday.
Richard John Neuhaus, at First Things: On the Square, has new thoughts, memories and links. Neuhaus marched with King and knew him personally during the last 3 years of his life. Neuhaus' October 2002 essay, "Remembering Martin Luther King, Jr." is truly a "must read" for an understanding of King's life and spirituality.
Stanford University has online a collection of King's early sermons, published in book form as A Knock at Midnight. Audio versions of the sermons are also available on that site.
