What's Open, Closed on MLK Day?
Wondering what is going to be open and closed on Monday, 21?
Today is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day – a floating federal holiday on the third Monday of January designated to celebrate the renowned civil rights activist’s birthday on Jan. 15.
King is remembered for many achievements, but perhaps his most famous public address was his "I Have A Dream" speech on Aug. 28, 1963 in Washington, D.C., part of the historic March on Washington. See a video of the speech on the right.
