January 16: Martin Luther King Jr. Day

The third Monday of each January is a federal holiday in celebration of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, although his true birthday fell on January 15, 1929. MLK nonviolently resisted Jim Crowe laws and protested segregation. His fight for equality and civil rights for Black Americans during the Civil Rights Movement created a lasting impact in the United States. His legacy is one of Black liberation.

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that." -MLK
