Martin Luther King confronted racism, oppression and intolerance with faith, character and perseverance. His struggle to advance civil rights was long and persistent, and yet even as his own life was at risk, Dr. King marched forward peacefully with a clear, powerful voice for positive change.
His vision for change was immortalized in his "I have a dream" speech, delivered in front of the Lincoln Memorial at perhaps the height of racial tensions in March of 1963. He inspired millions of Americans, and others around the globe, to actively pursue equality and "a beautiful symphony of brotherhood".
