On this day we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s life, and inaugurate the 44th President of the United States, and the first African American President, Barack Hussein Obama.

Below is MLK's last speech, also known as his I've Been to the Mountaintop speech. He addressed a crowd of public union workers in Memphis, Tennessee while marching to Washington, D.C. as part of the Poor People's Campaign. The next day, April, 4th 1968, he was shot and killed.

Also, don't forget to join us at Scholtz's for the President's inaugural speech today!
