OriginEdit

Martin Luther King, Jr. was a pastor and civil rights activist who was the most famous leader of the African-American Civil Rights Movement during the 1960s. He used nonviolent civil disobedience and protests to further his cause. He led the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott and helped found the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). He led a protest in Birmingham, helping the news record police brutality towards blacks and his famous March on Washington where he delivered his “I Have A Dream Speech”.

He lost many liberal allies by focusing on poverty and the Vietnam War; FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover considered him a radical. He was planning a march on Washington for poor people when he was assassinated in Memphis by James Earl Ray. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and Presidential Medal of Honor, has had a federal holiday established in his name and a memorial statue created on the National Mall.

EffectsEdit
