Martin Luther King, Jr., (January 15, 1929-April 4, 1968) was born Michael Luther King, Jr., but later had his name changed to Martin. His grandfather began the family’s long tenure as pastors of the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, serving from 1914 to 1931; his father has served from then until the present, and from 1960 until his death Martin Luther acted as co-pastor. Martin Luther attended segregated public schools in Georgia, graduating from high school at the age of fifteen; he received the B. A. degree in 1948 from Morehouse College, a distinguished Negro institution of Atlanta from which both his father and grandfather had graduated.
Please take the time and reflect on Dr. King’s legacy and where the world is at today. We can use his inspiration and courage to continue to make a more just world. In a few more days we will be swearing in our first African American Woman Vice President. We have made so much progress but still have such a long way to go. Continue to use your voice, time, money, and effort to be a service to your community.
Take a look at Dr. King “I have a dream speech.”
