MLK Day today:
Although he was born on January 15, today is the day the USA sets aside to tribute Martin Luther King. He was an American Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1955 until his assassination in 1968. As an inspirational speaker he was unparalleled. His ‘I Have a Dream’ speech is as relevant today as it was when he first spoke it. If you haven’t read it, or read it recently, do it today in his honour.
Some interesting facts you might not have known about MLK:
15 years old
Martin was a smart child, so smart that he skipped the 9th and 12th grade before enrolling at Morehouse College in 1944, the alma mater of his father and maternal grandfather. King originally did not intend to follow the family vocation of becoming a preacher until the Morehouse president convinced him otherwise. He was ordained before graduation.
3 Grammy nominations
When you think Dr. King, you probably don’t think Grammy award winner and chart topper, but the affluent speaker released albums of his sermons and speeches, receiving 3 Grammy nominations and winning the award posthumously in 1971
