Apple and Tim Cook Commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day in the United States, a federal holiday commemorating the American civil rights movement leader.
Apple today has honored the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a full-page tribute on its website. A photo of Dr. King is accompanied by an iconic quote of his: "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
Over the weekend, Apple CEO Tim Cook tweeted a photo of himself and others volunteering at A.J. Dorsa Elementary School in San Jose, California, reflective of Dr. King's call for people to serve others.
Cook has since commemorated Martin Luther King Jr. Day in a follow-up tweet.
Thanks to Dorsa Elementary students and all who joined Apple volunteers in San Jose today! Sixty years ago, Dr. King called on all of us to make a career of humanity. “You will make a greater person of yourself, a greater nation of your country, and a finer world to live in.” pic.twitter.com/UOssKy4Tl6 — Tim Cook (@tim_cook) January 19, 2019
On #MLKDay, let us remember our own duty to do good. As King said: “In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there is such a thing as being too late. This is no time for apathy or complacency. This is a time for vigorous and positive action.” pic.twitter.com/G2SSY5UfEV — Tim Cook (@tim_cook) January 21, 2019
