Microsoft uses Bing to help commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Microsoft is observing Martin Luther King Jr. Day with the help of Bing. The company is using a number of Bing tools, including search and maps, in order to commemorate the late civil rights leader.

The Bing homepage today features an image of Atlanta, Georgia's "Homage to King" sculpture, with more information and links on the page. Meanwhile, over on the Bing Blogs, you can go on a virtual tour of several important landmark from King's life thanks to Bing Maps. Maps has also highlighted a number of parade and March routes from around the country, making it easier to find any close to you.

Finally, audio and video from a number of King's speeches have been collected under Bing video search. You can also find more details on other civil rights leaders, and important moments in the civil rights movement.
