Honoring Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today we honor the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., the civil rights leader who would have turned 90 this year. A federal holiday to honor King, who was assassinated in April, 1968 was first observed in 1986. Congress also designated a national day of service in 1994.
