Martin Luther King Day

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is a United States federal holiday marking the birthday of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. It is celebrated on the third Monday of January each year, which is around the time of King's birthday of January 15th. King was the chief spokesman for nonviolent activism in the civil rights movement, which successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law. One of the best ways for your institution, community or corporation to celebrate this holiday is to hire an African-American public speaker from Great Black Speakers to speak on a variety of topics such as racial tolerance in the workplace, the history of slavery and stories of life of Dr. King and his message of hope.
