Meaningful Ways to Celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on January 17th

Learn Important Lessons from the Life of this Great American Hero

American history is replete with many towering figures, and civil rights champion Martin Luther King, Jr. is among those at the forefront. The cause he successfully fought for remains as relevant today as it was in the era that he lived.

The third Monday of January is recognized as Martin Luther King Jr. Day, or MLK Day, in remembrance of the outstanding contributions he made in shaping our society. This year, the federal holiday takes place on January 17th.

Martin Luther King Jr. is widely known as a dedicated activist for racial justice, pushing for equality for black Americans. During his time, colored individuals were subjected to unfair treatment and discrimination. King served as an inspirational leader who mobilized people into action through nonviolent protest.

He gained fame for his inspirational speeches, especially the one he delivered on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. in 1963 entitled “I Have a Dream.” The speech called for an end to racism.

King’s words still resonate long after he’s gone. With continuing racial incidents spurring the Black Lives Matter movement, Americans have been taking to the streets to denounce what they claim is the injustice being perpetrated against people of color by institutions mandated to protect all citizens.
