Martin Luther King was a civil rights leader and a Baptist minister.

He believed all people had the right to freedom and equality.


Martin Luther King is well-known for his "I have a dream"

speech that he delivered in the summer of 1963 in

Washington, D.C.


To this day, we can still remember the powerful words that

he spoke.  His dream was not unrealistic and we can see

the result of it daily around us.


He was born in Atlanta, Georgia on January 15, 1929.

His father was the pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church and

his mother was the church choir director.


As a youngster, Martin found out that white people and

black people were not treated equally.

But his parents thought him to treat everyone the same.


While in college, Martin studied about Mohandas Gandhi, who

led the people of India to change the laws in his country in

a peaceful and non-violent way.


For his struggle against racial oppression, Martin Luther King

was awarded the Nobel Peace Price in 1964.


In 1968, at the age of 39, Martin Luther King was assassinated

by James Earl Ray, on the balcony of Martin's hotel.


Martin Luther King knew that he could made a difference.

And he did!

His death was that of a leader but not the death of a dream!
