Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Google Doodles use art to acknowledge important historical figures and holidays from around the world. But a new report says the search-engine company should celebrate more people of color, especially women. Take a look at global icons of color who have been acknowledged with Doodles. –Natelege Whaley (@Natelege_)

Martin Luther King Jr. Day was commemorated in 2015, with a Google Doodle of the march the civil rights leader led across the Edmund Pettus Bridge, from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. The marches were part of a movement that led to the passing of the Voting Rights Act in 1965.
