If yes, you have come to the right place. Martin Luther King Day in 2017 will be observed on Monday, 16th January.

Martin Luther King Day every year is celebrated on the third Monday of January. It is an American federal holiday which marks the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. It is seen as a day to promote equal rights for all Americans, regardless of their background. On this holiday, we commemorate the universal, unconditional love, forgiveness and nonviolence that empowered his revolutionary spirit.

It is a day of interracial and intercultural cooperation and sharing. No another day of the year brings so many peoples from different cultural backgrounds together in such a vibrant spirit of brother and sisterhood.

However, Martin Luther King Day in 2017 is observed on Monday, 16th January. The holiday would not have been possible without the tireless leadership of the King Center’s founder and long-time president, Mrs. Coretta Scott King.
