    Each year on the third Monday of January, the nation observes the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. As a leader in the civil rights movement, King stood as a pillar of hope and a model of grace. His influence was pivotal in ending segregation and the national holiday provides an opportunity to reflect on the work that still needs to be done for racial equality.
