HISTORY OF THE DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. HOLIDAYDr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day is an official holiday which has been celebrated on thethird Monday of January since 1986.It is the first new holiday adopted in the UnitedStates since 1948, when Memorial Day was created as a “prayer for peace” day.It wasone of three new holidays designated during the twentieth century; the other wasVeterans Day, created as Armistice Day in 1926.Dr. King is the only American besidesGeorge Washington to have a national holiday designated for his birthday (those ofAbraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, Robert E. Lee and others have been celebrated insome states but not nationwide).Internationally, Dr. King is one of the few social leadersof any country to be honored with a holiday.Generally, such an honor is reserved formilitary or religious figures.Consequently, this holiday is a powerful tribute to Dr. King’sphilosophy and nature.When President Ronald Reagan signed legislation creating the holiday in November of1983, it marked the end of a persistent, highly organized lobbying effort spanning thenation for 15 years. Representative John Conyers (D., Michigan), first introducedlegislation for a commemorative holiday four days after Dr. King was assassinated in1968. The bill became stalled in that legislative session. With help from New YorkDemocratic Representative Shirley Chisholm, Conyers resubmitted the legislation in eachsubsequent legislative session.
