Martin Luther King: 380 Statutes

At our church yesterday, we were reminded of the intellectual and social giant that we lost on April 4, 1968. No matter what you think of his politics or his persona, the man was brilliant and changed America, if not the world.

I ran a very simple search in all statutes in westlaw, and found there are 380 statutes that have his name. Most, of course, declare the holiday in his name. But many states also had "Martin Luther King, Jr. Commissions" designed to carry on his efforts at peaceful racial co-existence.
