Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

President Ronald Reagan signed a bill in November 1983 establishing the holiday . The first federal King holiday was celebrated in 1986. It took longer for the 50 states to adopt the holiday. Martin Luther King Jr. changed his name from Michael to Martin after his father adopted the name Martin in honor of the Protestant leader Martin Luther.
