Martin Luther King, Jr Day: Honoring and Celebrating a Great Man

This January 20th, our country will gather together to celebrate the life and achievements of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This scholar, clergyman and leader of the Civil Rights movement for African-Americans made significant contributions not just for human rights, but also in the way we struggle to free the oppressed. I, for one, am delighted to acknowledge and honor him on this day.

Martin Luther King, Jr was instrumental in the fight against segregation in the United States. He organized the Montgomery Bus Boycott in Alabama in 1955 and was the first president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. But King is best known for his philosophy, which meant that he always sought for nonviolent ways to change the hearts and minds of the people. He practiced this through civil disobedience, which is very important to remember. Through his “I Have a Dream” speech during the 1963 March on Washington, he became known to the world as one of the best public speakers America has ever known. In 1968, he was assassinated. For truly, he was a king among men.
