Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was one of the most important figures in the American Civil Rights movement, and believed that with love and peace, the world could become a better place for all.  We now celebrate the life and impact of Dr. King every year on the third Monday of January, reflecting on his “I Have a Dream” speech, and the many accomplishments made possible by the implementation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
