Martin Luther King Jr.

Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is one of the most prominent civil rights leaders of all time. His belief in using non-violent methods of resistance has inspired freedom movements all over the world. In 2011, King was honored by the U.S. when he became the first African–American to receive a memorial on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
