The time has come once again to commemorate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Dr. King was not only a pastor, humanitarian, and a civil rights activist but he was a catalyst for racial equality. He was a believer in the nonviolent civil rights movement and Dr. King was a Nobel Peace Prize winner as well as being awarded with many prestigious posthumous awards and honors. Although Dr. King was assassinated in 1968, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day did not become an official federal holiday until 1986. In 1994 Dr. King’s federal holiday was designated as a national day of service by congress. The MLK Day of Service has become a call to service, a way for people to strengthen and serve their communities.
