In 1994, the U.S. Congress officially established a new federal holiday: Martin Luther King Day.
Commemorating the birthday of the late civil rights activist, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the holiday is officially observed on the third Monday in January. (King's actual birth date is Jan. 15.)
To honor King's legacy, MLK Day is designated as a day of service, with thousands of volunteer service projects being organized in communities nationwide.
