Happy MLK Day everyone! Martin Luther King Jr. was a man of God who sacrificed his life fighting for a better future for everyone. He stood for peace, he stood for freedom, and he taught us how we can advocate for both in a non-violent way. The winner of the Nobel Peace prize while just 35, MLK fought for civil rights for African Americans including the voting rights in 1965 as portrayed in the powerful movie, SELMA.

To honor the legend today being the first Monday in January, celebrities, including Beyonce, Lupita Nyong'o, Gabrielle Union, Alicia Keys and more, took to social media to share their favorite quotes, tributes and iconic photos.
