“Almost always the creative, dedicated minority has made
the world better.”
–Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929–1968)
American civil rights leader
Nobel Peace Prize winner
Martin Luther King lived for just over 39 years.
He traveled over six million miles, spoke on over 2500 occasions, became an icon for civil rights, was Time magazine’s Man of the Year at age 35, and won the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize.
When you have some time (outside the money hours or on a well-earned break), enjoy his “I Have a Dream” speech (he was 34 when he delivered it at the Lincoln Memorial… unreal), read his Nobel Prize acceptance, or listen to this quick audio clip (love this) from his Drum Major Instinct sermon for a little inspiration (full text of the speech).
