Overview

As one of the most important and inspirational leaders of America's civil rights movement, Martin Luther King, Jr. became the catalyst for change in a nation marked by segregation and discrimination. Unlike the civil rights activists who argued for a violent response to segregation and prejudice, King believed that peaceful resistance could bring about great change.

Nearly half a century after his assassination, King continues to inspire much of the American dialog about civil rights.
