Born in Atlanta on January 15, 1929, Martin Luther King Jr. was a minister and civil rights leader who strongly believed in nonviolence. He attended Crozer Theological Seminary School in Chester, Pennsylvania to further his studies as a minister. In 1963 he was named magazine's Man of the Year; the next year he became the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. King is most remembered for his powerfully moving speeches, including "I Have a Dream," given before a crowd of 200,000 at the March on Washington in 1963. He was assassinated on April 4, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee by James Earl Ray.
