Martin Luther King Jr. Day is celebrated on the third Monday of every January in the U.S. Dr. King’s actual birthday was Jan. 15 and the holiday is intended to fall around the same time as his birthday.

Dr. King was an overwhelmingly important figure during the civil rights movement and popularized nonviolent activism in the U.S. Dr. King made too many contributions to American society to list in an article such as this, but his importance to social progress in the country can’t be overstated.
