Here is the 2007 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Presidential Proclamation released by The White House.
I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim Monday, January 15, 2007, as the Martin Luther King, Jr., Federal Holiday. I encourage all Americans to observe this special day with appropriate civic, community, and service programs and activities in honor of Dr. Kingâ€™s life and legacy.

"when you are humiliated day in and day out by nagging signs reading "white" and "colored"; when your first name becomes "nigger," your middle name becomes "boy" (however old you are) and your last name becomes "John," and your wife and mother are never given the respected title "Mrs."
In an editorial in today’s NY Daily News, the paper prints a letter that Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote while in an Alabama jail. The letter was written in response to white clergyman who were critical of his protests and demonstrations calling them "unwise" and "untimely." His response was a letter, which…
…stands today as one of the great writings in American history… a single, pain-filled, 300-plus word sentence, explaining why waiting was "unwise and untimely"

Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Each year on the third Monday of January we celebrate the birth, the life and the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
"I have a dream…
I have a dream that one day little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers
I have a dream today"
It is a time for the nation to remember the injustices that Dr. King fought. A time to remember his fight for the freedom, equality, and dignity of all races and peoples. A time to remember the message of change through nonviolence.
So visit our celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. for more on the man and the holiday. And check out the Video and Text of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” Speech. In its entirety.
