Martin Luther King Day

Martin Luther King Day
Martin Luther King Day is marked every year on the third Monday in January to honour Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK), a Baptist minister and social activist who is known for his contributions to the American civil rights movement in the 1960s.

His iconic 1963 speech “I Have a Dream” Speech became one of the defining moments of the civil rights movement. King described his hope for a world in which children will no longer be judged by their skin color and where Black and White alike will join hands.

He was the youngest man to have received the Nobel Peace Prize, and turned over the 54K prize to the furtherance of the civil rights movement.
