“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is
what are you doing for others?”
-Martin Luther King Jr.
January 16, 2023
Each year, on the third Monday in January, Americans have the opportunity to celebrate the life and work of Martin Luther King, Jr. According to the National Constitution Center (NCC), the Martin Luther King Jr. federal holiday was first approved in 1983. In 2000, it was made a state holiday in all 50 states. The federal holiday serves multiple purposes: to honor the total legacy of Dr. King; to focus on the issue of civil rights; to highlight the use of nonviolence to promote change and to call people into public service (NCC 2022.) The King Center has designated the theme for the King Holiday 2023 as “It Starts with Me: Cultivating a Beloved Community Mindset to Transform Unjust Systems.”
