Happy Birthday

Stevie Wonder was instrumental in the push to create the Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday holiday. There was a lot of opposition. In case you are too young to remember when that happened, the whole story is at Medium. The fact that some don’t know about it makes me feel old. The national holiday wasn’t officially recognized until 1986. (via Boing Boing)

Hear the studio version of the song here.
