Martin Luther King Jr .
Martin Luther King, Jr., (January 15, 1929-April 4, 1968) was born Michael Luther King, Jr., but later had his name changed to Martin.
In an eleven-year period between 1957 and 1968, King traveled over six million miles and spoke over twenty-five hundred times, appearing wherever there was injustice, protest, and action; and meanwhile he wrote five books as well as numerous articles.
He directed the peaceful march on Washington, D.C., of 250,000 people to whom he delivered his address, "l Have a Dream".
