The Meaning of The Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday — Celebrating 25 Years


The King Holiday honors the life and
contributions of America’s greatest champion of
racial justice and equality, the leader who not
only dreamed of a color-blind society, but who
also lead a movement that achieved historic
reforms to help make it a reality.
 

 

On this day we commemorate Dr. King’s great dream of a vibrant, multiracial nation united in justice, peace and reconciliation; a nation that has a place at the table for children of every race and room at the inn for every needy child. We are called on this holiday, not merely to honor, but to celebrate the values of equality, tolerance and interracial sister and brotherhood he so compellingly expressed in his great dream for America.
