Martin Luther King Jr. Day (sometimes referred to as MLK Day) is a federal holiday in the United States marking the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. It is observed on the third Monday of January each year.

King was the chief spokesperson for nonviolent activism in the Civil Rights Movement, which successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law. The campaign for a federal holiday in King's honor began soon after his assassination in 1968. It was officially observed in all 50 states for the first time in 2000.

TED Talks (and so do you!)

To cultivate a society grounded in equity and love, we must uproot systems of oppression and violence towards Black communities, says Dr. Bernice Albertine King, community builder and daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. Bernice King was six years old when her father was assassinated. She is now a Change Maker in her own right, and she speaks in June 2020 with reference to racial injustice going on in the United States, and protest marches have become a frequent tool to organize and protest the treatments of Blacks. The catalyst for these protest marches has been the deaths of Blacks at the hands of the police, for minor offenses, and these deaths appear to be a result of police brutality. Hear her discussion
