T.D.I.H. - Jan 15

On this day in January 15, 1929, Michael King Jr was born. When he was five, he was renamed Martin Luther King Jr. He would go on to become one of our country's greatest civil rights leaders, until his assassination on April 4, 1968. His oratory is famous, and perhaps his best known speech is his "I Have a Dream" speech. His messages of color blindness and non-violence ring true today.
