Dr. Martin Luther King at the March on Washington

Honoring the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King

Born on January 15, 1929, in Atlanta, Georgia, Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Baptist minister, civil-rights activist, and an advocate for race relations in the United States. 

Through King's activism and inspirational speeches, he played an essential role in ending the legal segregation of African-American citizens in the U.S., as well as spurring the creation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. 

King received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, among several other honors. King was assassinated in April 1968 and continues to be remembered as one of the most influential and inspirational African-American leaders in history.
