Martin Luther King Jr.

Today, January 17, is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. MLK was born on January 15, 1929, and he lived until his assassination on April 6, 1968. King was a major voice and a leader during the American Civil Rights Movement during the 50s and 60s. Despite coming to light during violent times, King himself was not a violent man. Non violence and civil disobedience are how he got his points across.

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!
