January 17 is Martin Luther King Day, in honor of his date of birth. From his full name Martin Luther King Jr, the man is known for his fight for the civil rights of African-American people in the 1960s.
It is through the organization of several events and support, among others at Rosa Parks, that he was able to rally thousands of people, even millions, to his cause. In 1963 he gave the speech I Have a Dream, who made history. Then, in 1964, he was awarded the Nobel Prize of Peace, making him the youngest to receive this honor.
Unfortunately, he was assassinated in 1968. Even today, his message resonates in nations and inspires people everywhere.
