This week in history Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was born in Atlanta, Georgia on January 15, 1929.  One of the best known faces of the civil rights movement, Dr. King worked tirelessly to end segregation in the American south. He was a gifted orator and used nonviolent protest as a means of ending discrimination and promoting voting rights for African Americans.
