Happy Birthday, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr!

By FPL_Sunita

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was born on January 15, 1929, in Atlanta, Georgia and is widely regarded as one of the most influential figures in the Civil Rights Movement in American history.

King is a hero who stood firm in his fight against racism. His unwavering commitment to achieving racial equality and his exceptional talent for public speaking have had a lasting impact on our country. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest speakers in American history, and his words still resonate with us today.

We honor the legacy of a civil rights icon and Nobel Peace Prize laureate who campaigned for equitable laws that are fair and just for every individual.
