Martin Luther King Jr.  January 15, 1929 - April 4, 1968 

      The Rev. Martin Luther King changed the course of American history with his leadership of the civil rights movement. His philosophy of answering injustice with acts of nonviolent civil disobedience helped open white America’s eyes to America’s racial inequality. King’s legendary speeches were equal parts logic and music — finely reasoned arguments firmly based on religious and philosophical principles, delivered in the ringing, rhythmic style of the Southern preacher. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. King was assassinated in Memphis, Tenn., in 1968.          Click Here to View Video     For more MLK speeches go to MLK Online

    As a young black man I hope Mr. King jr., can smile at the fact that a big part of his dreams have come true. Not to say us black people don’t have a WHOLE lot of work to do, but for us as a people we come a long way!!! So today every black person give yourself a pat on the back because we’ve came along way and we have even further to go!!! I’m Proud to be BLACK and I’m proud of my black people!!! K.I.M.
