Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial

Today we celebrate the life of Martin Luther King Jr. He is honored most prominently for his leadership during the Civil Rights Movement in America. In the fight for racial equality, he arguably has had the greatest impact of any one person. A memorial in Washington D.C. was dedicated to Dr. King in August 2011.  It is the only memorial on the national mall not dedicated to a president or war hero. “His inspiration broke the boundaries of intolerance and even national borders, as he became a symbol, recognized worldwide of the quest for civil rights of the citizens of the world.” – NPS

The following timeline, created by, presents the life of Dr. King and honors his legacy.
