Martin Luther King Jr. - Celebrate the Legacy

Posted on Jan 16 , 2017
King was known for his key role in American civil rights movement. Martin Luther King Jr. was born in 1929.  King was a Baptist preacher and social activist. From the mid-1950s until his assassination in 1968, King played a key role in the American civil rights movement.  He was inspired by advocates of nonviolence such as Mahatma Gandhi.  King was known for his peaceful protests which sought equality for African Americans, the economically disadvantaged and the victims of injustice.  King was the driving force behind turning point events such as the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the March on Washington.  These events assisted in bringing about such landmark legislation as the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.  In 1964, King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and is remembered each year on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a U.S. federal holiday since 1986.
