 Today Google said many unique things while celebrating Martin Luther King Jr.

                            1. It commemorates the United National Federation holiday and service and reflection on King's life and work.

                            2. Civil rights leader who served as a lifelong advocate for racial equality and the end of segregation.


 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was born on January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia.  He began his career of service in Montgomery, Alabama as a pastor and community leader in the NAACP, aiming to establish legal protections.  Black community in all aspects of social and institutional life.  NAACP members elected Dr. King to fight segregation by leading the historic bus boycott in 1955.  As the first, large-scale, peaceful demonstration of its kind, the Montgomery Bus Boycotts marked a turning point in the American civil rights movement and inspired generations to fight for civil rights.


  Through impressive performances, speeches and written works, Dr. King spread his message of racial justice and economic equality.  Their efforts culminated with the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, a landmark piece of legislation that decided to end legal public segregation and discrimination in the United States.  King's birthday, the third Monday of January was declared a federal holiday in 1983 and was first observed in 1986.


  Dr. King's legacy continues in his children's work and in millions inspired by his influential rhetoric to advance the arc of the moral universe in an equal society for all.


  Happy Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2022
