馬丁路德金恩是美國民權運動中最重要的領袖人物,為了所有人的公平權利而努力,他以非暴力抗議來對抗不公平的待遇而成名,對於終止種族隔離法令(禁止黑人進入特定地點像是餐廳、飯店與公立學校的法律)的努力從未停止,他同時也盡其所能讓人們瞭解「人生而平等」的真諦,因為他的卓越功績,1964年時金恩榮獲諾貝爾和平獎 – 同時也是或此殊榮最年輕的得主,他也是一位浸信會的牧師。馬丁路德金恩在年僅39歲時於田納西州曼斐斯遭刺殺,他的生日現在已被訂為國定紀念日、於每年一月的第三個星期一為美國的馬丁路德金恩紀念日,以紀念這位偉人。

Martin Luther King Jr. was the most important voice of the American civil rights movement, which worked for equal rights for all. He was famous for using nonviolent resistance to overcome injustice, and he never got tired of trying to end segregation laws (laws that prevented blacks from entering certain places, such as restaurants, hotels, and public schools). He also did all he could to make people realize that "all men are created equal." Because of his great work, in 1964 King received the Nobel Peace Prize -- the youngest person ever to receive this high honor. King was also a Baptist minister. He was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee, when he was just 39 years old. His birthday is now observed as a national holiday on the third Monday in January.
