Martin Luther King Jr. was born
on January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia. King, both a Baptist
minister and civil-rights activist, had a seismic impact on
race relations in the United States, beginning in the
mid-1950s. Among many efforts, King headed the SCLC. Through
his activism, he played a pivotal role in ending the legal
segregation of African-American citizens in the South and
other areas of the nation, as well as
the creation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting
Rights Act of 1965. King received the Nobel Peace Prize in
1964, among several other honors. King was assassinated in
April 1968, and continues to be remembered as one of the most
lauded African-American leaders in history, often referenced
by his 1963 speech, "I Have a Dream."
