brooklee dr martens Martin Luther King Jr
The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during the 1950s and ’60s made enormous strides for integration from schools, theaters, work places and restaurants. Even with the election of a black President, the Martin Luther King Jr. events will not likely reflect such integration.
Even among important historical figures, rarely can it be said a person changed the world.
Dr. King was a man of peace. This civil rights coupled his strong leadership, his Nobel Peace Prize in 1964; the Civil Rights Act of 1964; Voting Rights Act of 1965 which is a direct result of the civil rights movement. We are still not free from racism, bigotry, nor bias. Some adamantly deny these things but it is still here. Dr. King Jr. exposed these in ways that was done before change in public politics and the way we view ourselves as black people.
Dr. King Jr. would have wanted us to love like Jesus would love. Dr. King Jr’s life work can only be kept alive by abiding by the First Amendment. His work is a legacy and the greatest honor a man can give his country. Dr. King Jr. was humble.
