Martin Luther King, Jr. Day: third Monday in January

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

-----Martin Luther King, Jr.

Born in 1929 in Atlanta, GA, Martin Luther King earned a doctorate in systematic theology from Boston University in 1955. Shortly thereafter, Dr. King was elected president of the Montgomery Improvement Association, which orchestrated the Montgomery Bus Boycott in response to Rosa Parks' arrest for refusing to give up her seat on a segregated bus. From then until his assassination on April 4, 1968, King organized marches and protests, met with leaders from around the world, and published numerous books and papers promoting equality and civil rights. In August, 1963, King gave his famous "I Have a Dream" speech. He received the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, Norway, in December 1964.

First celebrated as a national holiday on January 20, 1986, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was created to "serve as a time for Americans to reflect on the principles of racial equality and nonviolent social change espoused by Martin Luther King, Jr."
