Martin Luther King Jr. Spreads Message of Peace

Martin Luther King Jr. breaks down walls of hatred with his transformative speeches and hopeful vision for racial harmony in the US. He becomes one of the most honored and recognizable symbols of social change in U.S. history. Tragically, he was killed by an assassin's bullet on April 4, 1968.
