On this Day in History
On this day in 1929, Martin Luther King Jr. is born in Atlanta, Georgia. King received a doctorate degree in theology and in 1955 helped organized the first major protest of the African-American civil rights movement: the successful Montgomery Bus Boycott.

The peaceful protests he led throughout the American South were often met with violence, but King and his followers persisted, and the movement gained momentum.
