What is Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Taking place on Monday’s third week in January every year, MLK day is a federal holiday in the United States that marks Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday. King’s actual date of birthday is January 15, 1929, but it is celebrated on a Monday every year.
King was integral to the progress of civil rights for Black Americans in the United States during the Civil Rights Movement taking place in the 1950s and 60s. This was a movement for social justice in the United States, where activists and civilians protested discrimination and segregation based on race in federal and state law, helping Black Americans gain equal rights legally across the United Stated of America.
