“Ha – PPY – birth – day” by Stevie Wonder #funfact : “Wonder recorded this to lobby for Dr. Martin Luther King’s January 15 birthday to be an American national holiday. As most of us know, King was a black American Civil Rights leader whose unique combination of the message of Jesus (love your enemies) and the method of Gandhi (non violent protest) gave both a strategy and a philosophy to the black civil rights movement. During the years he led the movement he won victory after victory without resorting to violence. King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 at the age of 35, making him the youngest Nobel Prize recipient. The third Monday in January is now Martin Luther King day in USA – a public holiday.” – Songfacts.com ✌💞 #drmartinlutherking #martinlutherkingjrday #happybirthday #lovenothate #peace
