On 28 August 1963, under the shadow of the hulking statue of Abraham Lincoln, Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. shared a dream with a congregation of his supporters, the nation at large, and the rest of the world as well.

It was a powerful message of hope that still resonates to this very day. It still doesn’t fail to stir our emotions. Dr. King was assassinated five years later but his vision, his hope, his dream, continues to live on. Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day to celebrate the birth of the iconic leader of the Civil Rights Movement.

Ever wondered why we celebrate the day in the first place? Here are some of the reasons why the day is so significant.
