1. 30 years ago today, on November 2, 1983, President Reagan signed a bill honoring the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. The first Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was celebrated in January 1986. Martin Luther King, Jr. is only one of three people who have had federal holidays named in their honor. The other two are Christopher Columbus and George Washington.
