Today’s Doodle, by guest artist Keith Mallett, captures one of the major themes of King’s speeches and writing: unity. “All life is interrelated,” he said. “We are all made to live together.” King urged Americans of all races to keep “working toward a world of brotherhood, cooperation, and peace.”
Celebrated on the third Monday of January every year – to align with King’s January 15th birthday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day was first observed as a federal holiday on January 20, 1986, but did not pass at state-level by all states until 1991.
The doodle leads to a search for “Martin Luther King Jr. Day” and is being displayed on Google’s U.S. homepage. Here’s the full image:
In my lifetime, King’s words have never felt more relevant and significant. His eloquence and faith in the greater-good continues to be a shining example of what’s possible.
