Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Day became a Federal Holiday in 1983.  It was not until 2000 that all 50 States recognized the day as a holiday as well.

"Today, the King holiday serves multiple purposes: It honors the total legacy of Dr. King; focuses on the issue of civil rights; highlights the use of nonviolence to promote change; and calls people into public service." -National Constitution Center
