Martin Luther King

In the turbulent 60s, one man had a dream......

Martin Luther King was born January 15, 1929. A clergyman and an activist, he led the 1955 Bus Boycott in Montgomery Alabama. In 1963, he led the march on Washington and delivered his never to be forgotten, 'I Have a Dream' speech. In 1964, he received the Nobel Peace Prize. He worked to end poverty and opposed the Vietnam war. Martin Luther King was assasinated in Memphis, Tennesse April 4, 1968, but his legacy of unity lives on.
