Civil-rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968) remains the most iconic figure of the American civil-rights movement. He is known for his teachings of nonviolence, and a memorial to honor his life is currently under construction in Washington, DC. To learn more about Dr. King, visit the King Center in Atlanta, GA.
