MLK Jr.

With the attack on history in this country I’m surprised we even recognize Martin Luther King Jr., but you know what, Nooz Buffet will.

King was born on the 15th of January in Atlanta Georgia, and he died on April 4, 1968 in Memphis Tennessee. He was just 39 years old when he was assassinated during his famous “I have A Dream Speech.” Yes, he was a minister, but he was also an activist and remembered most for his leadership during the Civil Rights movement.

MLK believed in equality, and he devoted his life to ensuring black Americans were given the same rights given to all Americans spelled out in the Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution. He was a follower of Mahatma Gandhi, which inspired his belief and use of peaceful protesting and nonviolent resistance.

Today, Monday, January 18th, we remember Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
