The 25th Anniversary of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is not only a federal holiday, but also a national day of service. Congress passed the King Holiday and Service Act in 1994, which established Dr. King's birthday as a day of service and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with leading this effort.
Although legislation was signed in 1983 designating Dr. King's birthday as a federal holiday, it was not observed until 1986, making 2011 the 25th anniversary of MLK Day.
