Celebrating Black History Month: Martin Luther King, Jr.

Black History Month wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. the leader of the civil rights movement.  He delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech during his March on Washington in 1963, which paved the way for the Civil Rights Act passed in 1968 just days after his assassination.

It would be difficult to condense all of Dr. King's accomplishments and acknowledgements into a few sentences.  He helped bring  about integration and rights for African-Americans, but we still have a ways to go.
