Google's Doodle for Martin Luther King Day

The colorful Doodle shows a group of children from different cultural backgrounds playing together, in honor of the holiday that celebrates Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday.

The graphic is a particularly appropriate illustration given one of the most famous lines from the prominent civil rights leader’s ‘I Have a Dream’ speech: “I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”

Google often creatively celebrates important dates and commemorates the lives of significant and notable figures with their logo’s design. We’ve seen other figures such as John Lennon, Jane Austen and Rosa Parks all have their lives commemorated with their own Doodle. So celebrating Dr. King is a somewhat expected, but delightful, commemoration.
