Good morning. Today we celebrate the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., the nonviolent champion of the Civil Rights Movement. At the end of last week, ahead of today’s holiday, President Obama designated three new national monuments with historical ties to the Civil Rights Movement: Birmingham, Alabama will be home to the Civil Rights National Historical Park, while the Freedom Riders National Monument will include a Greyhound bus station in Anniston, Alabama; Reconstruction Era National Monument is the final new monument, located in Beaufort County, South Carolina.

Here’s what’s good in gear: customizable organic tee shirts, a new family of street motorcycles, a jump-enhancing basketball shoe and much more. And here are some fresh stories to start the day.
