Live your dream.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, a powerful and inspiring civil rights activist of the early 1960s, played a huge role in the way we accept and treat each other — regardless of race or gender— today.
Dr. King is widely known today as an American activist who consistently and effectively advocated for peace, love, and equality among all people. He was a man of high faith and morale, which set him apart from the many other activists of this time.
Often compared to the likes of Mahatma Ghandi, the driving force to much of his life and speeches was always peace. His method of love and acceptance for all human beings is what led him to be one of the most renounced public figures in all of American history.
Beginning his life of activism nearly 61 years ago, Dr. King quickly became the face and leader of the civil rights movement. He played a role in organizing the March on Washington and is the creator of the famous “I Have a Dream” speech, which drew a crowd of nearly 250,000 people.
