On this day, we celebrate the legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by closing schools and offices, but it is important to remember that MLK Day is about more than just having a day off. It has come to be recognized as a day of service nationwide.

So take some time during these 24 hours to do something that honors Dr. King’s values and his revolutionary place in American history.
