Martin Luther King, Jr. Day celebration


Le Martin Luther King Day (jour de Martin Luther King) est un jour férié, aux États-Unis, marquant la date anniversaire de la naissance de Martin Luther King Jr. Il est fêté chaque année le troisième lundi du mois de janvier, autour du 15 janvier, date de l'anniversaire du révérend.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (officially Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr.) is an American federal holiday marking the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. It is observed on the third Monday of January each year, which is around King's birthday, January 15. The holiday is similar to holidays set under the Uniform Monday Holiday Act.

King was the chief spokesman for nonviolent activism in the Civil Rights Movement, which successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law. The campaign for a federal holiday in King's honor began soon after his assassination in 1968.
