A Day Off or a Day of Service?

Although we certainly understand how Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s accomplishments in the world call for celebration, one could ask if using the long weekend as a call to action for clubbing is the way to do it. The Washington Post’s Fritz Hahn recently covered how party promoters are using MLK and his image to promote their events. You can read the original story here, as well as see an example of one of many flyers below (complete with the “I Am The Dream” drink special).

Although Martin Luther King Jr. Day is a day when most people are excused from their professional obligations, should it really be a day off? Do you find this use of MLK’s image offensive? IMAGES wants to hear from our readers!
