Since the mid-1980s, the third Monday in January has been set aside as a day of service and community to pay homage to Doctor Martin Luther King Jr., and to commit ourselves to move forward with the work he began before his life was cut short by an assassin’s bullet in April of 1968.

Located in Philadelphia, the Museum of the American Revolution (MAR), uncovers and shares compelling stories about the diverse people and complex events that sparked America’s ongoing experiment in liberty, equality, and self-government.
