Martin Luther King Jr. Day

As we celebrate Martin Luther King Day on the 18th of January, we reflect on the achievements of this great civil rights leader. Though this is a relatively new federal holiday, there are a few long standing traditions that are observed on Martin Luther King Day.  Many schools observe the holiday by teaching their students about Martin Luther King and his work to end racial segregation and racism. On this day, volunteerism and community service are encouraged, as we mark the holiday as “a day on, not a day off.”.


Martin Luther King  was a leader in the movement to end racial segregation in the United States. He became the youngest man to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and advocated non-violent protest.


The Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday celebrates the life and legacy of a man who brought hope and healing to America. We commemorate as well the timeless values he taught us through his example — the values of courage, truth, justice, compassion, dignity, humility and service that so radiantly defined Dr. King’s character and empowered his leadership. On this holiday, we commemorate the universal, unconditional love, forgiveness and nonviolence that empowered his revolutionary spirit.
