Dr. Martin Luther King Jr


Martin Luther King Jr. has now been dead longer than he lived. He lived an extraordinary life.

At 33, he was pressing the case of civil rights with President John Kennedy. At 34, he galvanized the nation with his "I Have a Dream" speech. At 35, he won the Nobel Peace Prize. At 39, he was assassinated, but he left a legacy of hope and inspiration that continues today.
