Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Few have had as much impact upon the American consciousness as the late civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. King's public career lasted from the Montgomery, Ala., Bus Boycott in 1955 to his murder in Memphis, Tenn., in 1968. Today, this self-effacing, quiet man is memorialized by monuments, street names and a national holiday.
The National Holiday for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is held on the third Monday of January.
