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. He dreamed of an America where all people could enjoy the same rights and opportunities and then worked tirelessly to make his dream a reality. Nearly half a century after his assassination, King continues to inspire much of the American dialog about civil rights.
