Weekly Stuff

Interesting Fact of the Week

The original idea of honoring Dr. King was not overly favored. It was taken to Congress for approval in 1979 and it fell 5 votes short of passing. A petition was then circulated in 1980 to gather national support for the holiday. It gathered six million signatures, which is “the largest petition in favor of an issue in U.S. history.” The bill came to President Ronald Reagan’s desk in 1982 and in 1986 the first Martin Luther King Jr. Day was celebrated.

Martin Luther King, Jr. joined George Washington and Christopher Columbus as the only two other people to have national holidays in their honor in the United States.
