On Tuesday, January 15, 2019, The Black Women's Expo takes the time to honor Martin Luther King Jr., an iconic civil rights leader who defined a beloved community free of injustice and fought to actively promote love & humanity throughout America. Today Martin Luther King Jr. would have been 90 years old, celebrating a significant milestone. As celebrations of the King holiday fall on the shadow of a mass government shutdown imposed by the President of the United States affecting thousands of federal employees who are unable to support their families, we must continue to rise, and we must continue to fight on this journey to freedom and equality in America. #MartinLutherKingJr #Remembering #Community
