NYT GUIDE TO ESSENTIAL KNOWLEDGE

King, Martin Luther Jr.

King, Martin Luther Jr., b. Atlanta, 1929; d. 1968. Minister and social activist. The foremost leader of the civil rights movement of the 1960'S, King employed nonviolence to end legal segregation of blacks in the United States, especially in the South. His leadership during the Montgomery bus boycott (1955-56) drew national attention, and persuaded him to start the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. From this pulpit, he organized sit-ins and protest marches against segregation, notably the 1963 March on Washington, at which he delivered his famous "I have a dream" speech. His words moved the nation and led to the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the same year he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. King's march on Selma, Alabama, led to the Voting Rights Act of 1965. He was assassinated by a sniper, James Earl Ray, at a motel in Memphis on April 4, 1968.
