Martin Luther King Jr. was an American Baptist minister and activist who was a leader in the Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolent civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs. King became a civil rights activist early in his career. He led the 1955 Montgomery bus boycott and helped found the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) in 1957, serving as its first president. With the SCLC, King led an unsuccessful 1962 struggle against segregation in Albany, Georgia, and helped organize the 1963 nonviolent protests in Birmingham, Alabama. King also helped to organize the 1963 March on Washington, where he delivered his famous "I Have a Dream" speech.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.

Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.
       

Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
       

Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can't ride you unless your back is bent.
       

A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.
       

We are not makers of history. We are made by history.
       

Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.
       

That old law about 'an eye for an eye' leaves everybody blind. The time is always right to do the right thing.
       

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
       

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit together at the table of brotherhood. Martin Luther King, Jr.
       

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.
       

The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: 'If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?' But... the good Samaritan reversed the question: 'If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?'
       

Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.
       

The past is prophetic in that it asserts loudly that wars are poor chisels for carving out peaceful tomorrows.
