Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., born on January 15th in Atlanta, GA, is one of the most popular and well-known black historical figures in the world. Known for his advocacy for our community during the Civil Rights Movement and showing to have a sharp and intelligent mind, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. became a role model for many of us in the black community. King demonstrated during his advocacy peaceful protests is what can be done when inequality is seen. He also encouraged our community to fight for what we wanted by providing inspirational speeches which later led to Dr. King to be awarded with the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. 

However, just 4 years later, in 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was fatally shot at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee.
