Long Island Honors Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Events & Memorials to Honor & Celebrate the Life of Dr. King
Martin Luther King, Jr. will be forever memorialized on January 20th for his contribution to the civil right movement. He is best known for his "I Have a Dream Speech" where he proclaimed  his dream for a nation where people can be judged by the content of their character and not by the color of their skin. Sadly, while still rallying for civil rights, King was assassinated in 1968. King's achievements were honored officially in 1983 where January 20th became a federal holiday; this day is close to King's birthday which is on January 15th. Over the Long Weekend, locals will be honoring the late Dr. King with a variety of events and memorials.
