The Sprouting of a Legendary Icon: Martin Luther King

Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

All men can be a soldier, but all soldiers cannot become a hero. Many are born to listen but one man will definitely speak for all.

January 15, 1929 is day to remember in the history of humanity. The voice of a true friend and voice of all germinated like a lily beside the rock of spring water. A day that an African that will speak for the world was born. It is the day that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. came to be.

Dr. Martin Luther King was born in Atlanta, Georgia into a humble Christian family and was educated on Christian beliefs and doctrines in a Baptist seminary school.

He was named as the Civil Rights Activist in the year 1955 based on his humanitarian and nonviolent Christian protests. He believed that the world can be friend to one another if everyone has the forgiving heart, but also struggle for truth in solidarity.

Dr. Martin Luther King visited West Africa in the year 1957 to celebrate the victory of freedom for Ghana. He traveled to Ghana with his wife, Coretta Scott King for the country’s independence ceremony.

The Hero of human rights died on April 4, 1968 as another legend with the interest of all when he was assassinated.
