Who is Martin Luther King, Jr.
------------------------------
Baptist minister and civil rights leader. Born Michael Luther King, Jr., on January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia. The grandson and son of Baptist ministers, King grew up singing in his church choir. In 1935, his father changed both of their names to Martin to honor the
German Protestant.

Young Martin attended segregated public schools and graduated
from high school at age 15. In 1948, he received his B.A. degree
from Morehouse College in Georgia, the alma mater of both is father
and grandfather, and in 1951 he earned is B.D. from Crozer
Theological Seminary.

While at Crozer, King was elected president of a predominantly
white senior class. In 1955, he received a Ph.D. from Boston
University, where he also met his future wife, Coretta Scott , with
whom he had four children.

He was the guiding light for the most crucial years in America's
civil-rights struggle. Chosen president of the Southern Christian
Leadership Conference in 1957, advocating nonviolence, he was
jailed, attacked and had his house bombed.

King's finest hour came on 28 August 1963, leading the march in
Washington, DC, and making his famous "I have a dream" speech.
Sadly, he was assassinated in 1968.
