Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was born nearly a century ago - on January 15th, 1929.

This year, the Federal holiday on the third Monday in January that commemorates the civil rights leader’s life and legacy falls on what would have been his 95th birthday.

This Saturday through the holiday, the Unity Group of Chattanooga hosts its 54th annual King Week Celebration - with the theme “Love for Humanity and Justice.”

Eric Atkins is co-chair of The Unity Group.
