Celebrate MLK Day And Know Your Civil Rights

The world is celebrating the life and achievements of renowned civil rights leader and poverty fighter, Martin Luther King Jr. His philosophy of nonviolent resistance rallied 250,000 to join him during the pivotal March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in Washington, D.C. on August 28, 1963. At the age 35, he was the youngest man to have received the Nobel Peace Prize. He was assassinated at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee on April 4, 1968, at the age of 39. But he did not leave us without bestowing a great legacy -- one that continues to be revered by fellow humanitarians and citizens of all races and ages. 

In honor MLK day, The Toolbox is featuring two civil rights apps to keep you in the know about your civil rights. 

The app My Civil Rights features quick and easy information on rights that you need to know in different scenarios, including getting pulled over, getting arrested, or answering your door to a law enforcement officer. My Civil Rights includes a map of your location, phone numbers, comments and more. 

The Alabama Civil Rights Trail app walks users through the footsteps of the civil rights movement by exploring the faces, landmarks, and events that put Alabama at the forefront of the fight for racial equality.
