"That old law about 'an eye for an eye' leaves everybody blind. The time is always right to do the right thing."
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. was born on January 15, 1929. He was a Baptist minister, Nobel Peace Prize Winner, and civil rights leader who championed justice and equality. As he said, “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Dr. King was also a great advocate of change through non-violent civil actions based on his Christian values. He was a great speaker, and his powerful words resonate with us today.
MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. DAY
The third Monday in January is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. It has been a federal holiday since 1986. This means that it is a day off for federal employees, as well as many schools and businesses. This also means that the holiday does not always fall on Martin Luther King Jr.’s true birth date, January 15.
