Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is observed on the third Monday of January each year. It is one of three United States federal holidays to commemorate an individual person. Dr. King is remembered as an important historical figure in the civil rights movement which protested racial discrimination. The King Holiday was signed into law in 1983 and for the first time in 2000 was officially observed in all 50 states.
