In the U.S., we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the third Monday in January — January 20 this year. As a professional speaker, both in his role as minister and as civil rights leader, Martin Luther King Jr generated a remarkable body of quotes on a wide array of issues. Many have become touchstones in modern writing about courage, education, ethics, faith, justice, love, nonviolence, racism, sense, and more.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day is being observed this Monday, January 21. A powerful speaker and writer, King was one of the most well-known advocates of nonviolent activism and the chief spokesperson for the Civil Rights Movement here in the United States.
