The Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr., often called Martin Luther King Day, is a United States holiday marking the birth date of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., observed on the third Monday of January each year, around the time of King’s birthday, January 15. It is the only United States federal holiday commemorating an African American and one of only four to commemorate an individual person.

The day is marked by demonstrations for peace, social justice and racial and class equality, as well as a national day of volunteer community service. In recent years, the moniker of “A Day On, Not A Day Off” has been embraced by a significant number of communities.
