Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was the humble son of a southern Baptist minister who, through sheer passion and commitment to his cause, was able to inspire and motivate a whole national movement in gaining social reform.
Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech is still talked about decades after it was delivered to over 200,000 people who marched on Washington DC in 1963.
