One of the most symbolic leaders of American blacks, an advocate of nonviolence and a world figure Martin Luther King was born on 15th January, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia. Dr. King's involvement with the civil rights movement began with the arrest of Mrs. Rosa Parks on December 1st , 1955. Mrs. Parks, a African-American seamstress on her way home from work, was arrested for not giving a white bus rider her seat. Mrs. Parks was not the first African-American to be arrested for this "crime", but she was well known in the Montgomery African-American community. Dr. King and the other African-American community leaders felt a protest was needed. The African-American residents of the city were asked to boycott the bus company by walking and driving instead. The United States Supreme Court would end the boycott, which lasted 381 days, by declaring that Alabama's state and local laws supporting segregation on buses were illegal. The boycott was a success and Dr. King had showed that peaceful mass action could bring about change Know more about this wonderful human being, and celebrate his anniversary at TheHolidaySpot.
