Martin Luther King Day

Martin Luther King, Jr., Day

Each year on the third Monday of January schools, federal offices, post office and banks across America close as we celebrate the newest American national holiday.

15 years after Dr. King's death President Ronald Reagan signed a bill into law making the third Monday of January a national holiday celebrating the birth and life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The first national celebration of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday took place January 20, 1986.
