History : Remembering Rev Martin Luther King Jr

Remembering Rev Martin Luther King Jr

Martin Luther King Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) was an American Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1954 until his assassination in 1968. Born in Atlanta, King is best known for advancing civil rights through nonviolence and civil disobedience, tactics his Christian beliefs and the nonviolent activism of Mahatma Gandhi helped inspire.


My favorite MLK quote is
"We must come to see that the end we seek is a society at peace with itself, a society that can live with its conscience."

"Science investigates; religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge, which is power; religion gives man wisdom, which is control. Science deals mainly with facts; religion deals mainly with values. The two are not rivals."

He was a great leader. An inspiration and a wise philosopher.

A legend.

I always thought January should’ve been Black History Month because of him. February is for love ❤️. Today is a day of reflection and loss, a time to remember.
