Martin Luther King, the symbol of a man who "lights" the road of freedom and nondiscrimination

Updated: Nov 1, 2018

In the famous "I have a dream speech" Martin Luther King envisioned a world where people were no longer divided by race. King is an icon of the civil rights movement. His life and work symbolize the quest for equality and nondiscrimination that lies at the heart of the American—and human—dream. A huge crowd of 200,000 people amassed at the Lincoln Memorial and millions more watched on television as King put forward his vision of a day when freedom and equality would be achieved in America. King's words resonated across the world, becoming symbolic of the civil rights struggle and are still widely quoted today.


“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

—Martin Luther King, Jr.
