MLK HOLIDAY - NO SCHOOL Monday, January 20th
Why is the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr so important? He was famous for using nonviolent resistance to overcome injustice, and he never got tired of trying to end segregation to make people realize that "all men (and women) are created equal." This Monday Jan. 20th is Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday, an annual federal holiday always the third Monday in January since 1986 which celebrates the national civil rights leader. (D. Van Someren)
