This year, the Utah Jazz play the Indiana Pacers on Martin Luther King Jr. Day and the team hosted a workshop for kids where they learned more about Dr. King.

 “He really helped with segregation and injustice, so everyone can have equal rights which really helps now in society,” said Vanessa, one of the students who attended the workshop.
