Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was established as a U.S. federal holiday in 1986. On January 16 we honor this man who is best known for securing progress on civil rights in the United States and around the world. He is remembered as a non-violent advocate of equality for all men and women.

Dr. King‘s “I Have a Dream” speech was delivered on August 28, 1963, in which he called for racial equality and an end to discrimination. He was a ray of light and hope at a troubled time in our history. It is important that we honor him with a national holiday, but perhaps he would rather want us remember him by remembering and living his dream!

    Congratulations to you, Lee, for your caring essay about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. His “I Have a Dream” speech always brings tears to my eyes.

      Thank you kindly for your comments on my blog. Yes, that is a very powerful speech. Did you know that it remains under copyright in the United States until 70 years after Dr. King’s death, which would be until 2038? Some unlicensed use of the speech or parts of it can still be lawful, I understand. But everyone should hear it!
