What is MLK Day?

Martin Luther KingDr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
MLK Day (short for "Martin Luther King Day", also known as King Day or Martin Luther King Jr. Day) is a United States federal holiday celebrated annually on the third Monday of January. In some states it is also commonly referred to as "Civil Rights Day" or "Human Rights Day". In recent years it is increasingly seen to be a 'Day of Service' when Americans are encouraged to volunteer to help others less fortunate than themselves.

MLK Day commemorates the birthday of American civil rights leader Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and celebrates his life, achievements and legacy.

King was hugely influential in the American Civil Rights Movement (despite never holding public office) and was a major advocate of non-violent activism in the struggle for the end of racial discrimination under US law. He was assassinated in 1968.

The federal holiday in King's honor was created in 1983, during the presidency of Ronald Reagan, and first observed in January 1986.
