On #ThisDayinHistory 1983, President Reagan signs a bill designating a federal holiday honoring Martin Luther King, Jr., to be observed on the third Monday of January #AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Nov.02: However, the day wasn’t observed by all 50 states until 2000 when South Carolina recognised it #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/7337 Multiple states initially reacted negatively for a variety of reasons……….Some stated that a federal holiday would place undue financial burden on states because of the day off………Others simply argued that MLK wasn’t “worthy” of a holiday……….This decision inspired protests in multiple forms……….Perhaps most famously the Public Enemy song called “By The Time I Get To Arizona.” The song was a response to then Arizona Governor Evan Mecham cancelled MLK Day, saying, “I guess King did a lot for the colored people, but I don’t think he deserves a national holiday.” #MLK #MLKDay #holidayhistory #ByTheTimeIGetToArizona #PublicEnemy #AceHistoryNews is provided by Sterling Publishing & Media News
