Martin Luther King Day
Fidalgo Coffee Roasters will be closed for business on Monday, January 17th in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day
The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King made a difference by leading the civil rights movement of the 1960s, and his work has had lasting impact not only for African-Americans, but for women and other marginalized groups as well. One of the greatest orators in history, he exposed truths that many would rather not face. And he did it in a way that made people take notice. Dr. King fought racism in recognition of our mutual need for love, respect and the hope of achieving the American Dream. His legacy has been recognized as part of our national heritage, reflecting America’s best ideals in justice, equality, democracy and human rights. On August 28th, 1963, Dr. King gave his famous “I Have a Dream” speech.
Here's an excellent Youtube video of the full speech:
