Meeting in a Box: Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Each year, we celebrate the life and achievements of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the third Monday of January, the Monday closest to Dr. King’s birthday on January 15.

On MLK Day, we honor Dr. King’s civil rights leadership and legacy, celebrate the advancement of civil rights in the United States and acknowledge how much work remains to be done as we continue fighting for Dr. King’s dream.

A beacon of the civil rights movement in the 1960s, Dr. King’s resistance helped spur great change such as helping end segregation in the South and building momentum toward equal opportunities for people of color. Dr. King’s activism, which relied most commonly on civil disobedience and his strong oratory skills, fueled much of the Civil Rights movement and inspired other waves of resistance throughout the 20th and 21st centuries. This Meeting in a Box is a valuable tool to share with your staff to honor Dr. King’s legacy and talk about how to fight for civil rights moving forward.
