Melvin Adams is a former professional NCAA All-American basketball player and member of the world famous Harlem Globetrotters. Adams was challenged early in life with extremely negative circumstances; however, he dreamed of playing professional basketball. When life consistently gave Melvin new difficulties he turned to sports which kept him from trouble. During earlier years, he led the district in assists and steals, and averaged 16 points per game for the Eisenhower High School’s Eagles. Eventually Adams joined the Harlem Globetrotters and was named Mr. Globetrotter more times than one! On March 17, 2000 Adams retired from the Harlem Globetrotters to fulfill a new dream - to challenge individuals to personal success through focus, work and persistence. Today, he is privileged to speak before student and adult audiences sharing his personal story and inspiring others to see their dreams become realities.

The most influential of African American civil rights leaders during the 1960s, he was instrumental in the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which outlawed discrimination in public accommodations, facilities, and employment, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. King was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace in 1964. He was assassinated on April 4, 1968. Martin Luther King, Jr., Day is celebrated this year on Monday, January 17, 2022.
Almost immediately after King’s death, there were calls for a national holiday in his honour. Beginning in 1970 a number of states and cities made his birthday, January 15, a holiday. Although legislation for a federal holiday was introduced in Congress as early as 1968, there was sufficient opposition, on racial and political grounds, to block its passage. In 1983 legislation making the third Monday in January a federal holiday finally was passed, and the first observance nationwide was in 1986. The day is usually celebrated with marches and parades and with speeches by civil rights and political leaders.
