The Governor’s Commission on the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Statewide Holiday Celebration will mark the 26th anniversary of the state’s adoption of the federal Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday. A bill to adopt the federal holiday in Minnesota was introduced to the Minnesota Legislature by Rep. Randolph Staten. The measure was signed into law in January 1986.
This year’s theme is “Looking Back… Moving Forward: I Am My Brother’s Keeper!”
