A little history:
As a well-known and important civil rights activist, Martin Luther King was a very confident and special leader. He was a leader in the movement to end racial segregation in the United States. His most famous address was the “I Have A Dream” speech. He was an advocate of non-violent protest and became the youngest man to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. He was assassinated in 1968 but his memory lives on in continuing Civil Rights activities and events.
