Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Civil rights leader and clergyman Martin Luther King Jr. became a proponent of nonviolent resistance to promote civil rights for African Americans, inspired by a trip to India.

“We come humbly to say to the men in the forefront of our government that the civil rights issue is not an ephemeral, evanescent domestic issue that can be kicked about by reactionary guardians of the status quo,” King said in his powerful, rich preacher’s voice. “It is rather an eternal moral issue which may well determine the destiny of our nation…. The hour is late. The clock of destiny is ticking out. We must act now, before it is too late.”
