Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a social activist, Baptist minister and leader of the civil rights movement in the U.S. beginning in the mid-1950s until his death by assassination in 1968. His role in the civil rights movement was fundamental to ending the legal segregation of African Americans. Dr. King was a strong advocate for nonviolence, employing peaceful protest tactics such as the March on Washington and Montgomery Bus Boycott. His efforts helped bring about key legislation, including the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act. King was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, and his life is celebrated on the third Monday of January each year as a U.S. federal holiday. We welcome you to join us on Monday, January 20, 2020.
