Today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. A federal holiday to mark the life and work of the American civil rights worker. King was born on January 15, 1929 and was gunned down on April 4, 1968 in Memphis, Tennessee.
King was a Baptist pastor in Atlanta who encouraged civil protests surrounding the mistreatment of Blacks and racism that raged across the U.S. in the 1950s and 1960s.
While he is well known for his writings and speeches, he is perhaps most known for his I Have a Dream speech delivered in Washington D.C. on August 28, 1963.
