About Martin Luther King, Jr.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a vital figure of the modern era. His lectures and dialogues stirred the concern and sparked the conscience of a generation. The movements and marches he led brought significant changes in the fabric of American life.
Dr . King gave direction to 13 years of civil rights activities. His charismatic leadership inspired men and women, young and old, in this nation and around the world. Dr. King’s concept of “somebodiness,” which symbolized the celebration of human worth and the conquest of subjugation, sought to give black and poor people hope and a sense of dignity.
His philosophy of nonviolent direct action and his strategies for rational and non-destructive social change, galvanized the conscience of this nation and helped to reorder its priorities.
