This month we celebrate his and many others achievements in the Civil Rights Movement, giving black people the right to live free, as we all deserve! Born and Unborn I may add....
I especially love his message of peace, Dr Martin Luther King Jr taught that "We must meet hate with love" and "If pushed, do not push back, if struck do not strike back"
Martin Luther King Jr was born Jan 5, 1929 in Atlanta Georgia. He loved to learn and quickly learned that he was just as good as anyone else and created for success! By the age of fifteen he attended college and by the age of eighteen following in his fathers footsteps he became an ordained minister on Feb 25, 1948.
By 1955 he was finished with his studies and was then called Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, that same year he lead the bus boycott in Montgomery Alabama 1955-1956, that event lead to a change in the law giving blacks the right to sit any ware they wanted on a bus, blacks could no longer legally be forced to give up their seats to white passengers.
Aug 28, 1963 Dr King gives his famous "I have a dream" speech in Washington D.C.
"I have a dream, that one day, in our nation, people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character"
Dr Martin Luther King Jr won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, that same year the Civil Rights Act was passed and the next year the Voting Rights Act of 1965 protecting the rights of people from all races and religions.
