Martin Luther King Day Email Templates
The Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. is honored today as the United States' greatest advocate for civil rights and equality, a champion of the poor across class and racial lines. Ordained in Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church at the age of 19, Dr. King would go on to earn his doctorate in philosophy in 1955. Following the civil protest of Rosa Parks, Dr. King was elected president of the Montgomery Improvement Association to lead the bus boycott. He is best remembered for his “I Have a Dream” speech in Washington, D.C. in 1963.
Dr. King was a steadfast believer in non-violent protest. Even so, during the turbulent era of his life he was arrested approximately 30 times, each time for various protests against desegregation, voting rights, and even for trying to enter a whites only restaurant in June 1964.
Dr. King was shot standing on the balcony of his hotel room in Memphis, Tennessee on April 4, 1968. He remains an icon of American history, a devoted believer in justice and freedom for all.
