On this day, we remember a man who helped us look at dreams a little bit differently.
On November 2, 1983, President Ronald Reagan signed a bill creating a federal holiday to honor King. Observed for the first time on January 20, 1986, it is called Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
Following President George H. W. Bush’s 1992 proclamation, the holiday is observed on the third Monday of January each year, near the time of King’s birthday.
We hope you enjoy the day and remember the person who had a huge impact on securing civil rights in the United States.
