happy martin luther king day

Recommended Posts

"Michael King, Jr. was born in Atlanta on January 15, 1929, bearing the name of his father, Reverend Michael King. If that name doesn't sound familiar, that's because that child went on to become civil-rights icon Martin Luther King, Jr. Why the change? It sparked from his father's travels to Germany, where he became inspired by Martin Luther, the 16th-century leader of the Protestant Reformation. This influence was so strong that the Reverend changed both his name as well as that of his five-year-old son to Martin Luther."
