Martin Luther King, Jr., Day is a federal holiday on the third Monday in January, which honors the life and legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

President Ronald Reagan signed the holiday into law in 1983, and it was first observed on January 20, 1986.

“America is a more democratic nation, a more just nation, a more peaceful nation because Martin Luther King Jr became her pre-eminent non-violent commander.”—Ronald Reagan
