MLK Day commemorates the civil rights leader's birthday and celebrates his crusade for equal rights through nonviolent activism. King was assassinated 53 years ago in April 1968 and New York first recognized the holiday in 1984, two years before it became a national holiday.

This is one of nine holidays when the world's largest free-flying American flag is displayed on the George Washingon Bridge πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ
