Many Iowa State athletes and organizations are honoring Martin Luther King Jr. Day through tweets, remembering MLK and the movement he stood for.

Thank you MLK. 🙌🏿— Mike Warren (@M_Warren4) January 15, 2018
Happy #MLKday to everyone. We are forever grateful for the sacrifices he made to start to break down racist walls in this world. It is our jobs to keep his word alive and to keep on breaking those walls down.— Allen Lazard (@AllenLazard) January 15, 2018
This MLK day is especially significant for the Iowa State football team, as the team traveled to Memphis for the 2017 AutoZone Liberty Bowl and visited the National Civil Rights Museum located at the Lorraine Motel where King was murdered in 1968.
I am forever thankful and grateful for the life of MLK and the black Americans who stood firm for what we have now ‼️‼️‼️‼️ pic.twitter.com/VPKSmM99Se— David montgomery (@MontgomerDavid) December 27, 2017
Today is your day. We still working to make that dream you had come true. Slow and steady is how we going about it, but that’s better than no movement at all. Thank you for everything Dr. King... pic.twitter.com/jiFrYIFnak— Hakeem Butler (@410Keem) January 15, 2018
