Fun fact, while many photos of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s work are only ever shown in black and white, those photos were originally taken in full color. Color photography was the standard in the 1960s, but many photos are shown of the Civil Rights Movement in black and white. Black and White photos give the impression that the photo was taken farther back in history than they actually were.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr was a spokesperson for nonviolent activism in the Civil Rights Movement. Those who fought in the Civil Rights movement in the United States protested racial discrimination in federal and state laws. MLK was assassinated because many people at the time were violently opposed to people of color having the same rights and opportunities as white people. While much progress has been made, there is still work to do.
