MOVEMENT MEETS FOR THE FIRST TIME

File:Niagara Movement delegates, Boston, Mass., 1907.png ...

Niagara Movement members began meeting on the Canadian side of the
Niagara Falls on this day in 1905. This all-African American group of
scholars, lawyers and businessmen came together for three days to
create what would soon become a powerful
post-slavery Black rights
organization. Although it
 only lasted five years, the Niagara Movement
was an influential
 precursor to the civil rights movement of the mid-20th
century.

ACTIVIST WAS BORN ON THIS DAY IN 1929

Martin Luther King Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968)

On January 15, 1929, Martin Luther King, Jr. is born in Atlanta, Georgia,
the
son of a Baptist minister. King received a doctorate degree in theology
and in 1955 helped organized the first protest of the African-American civil
rights movement: the successful
Montgomery Bus Boycott. Influenced by Mohandas Gandhi, he advocated civil disobedience and nonviolent
resistance to segregation in the South. The peaceful protests he led
throughout the American South were often met with violence, but King
and his followers persisted, and the movement gained momentum.

A powerful orator, King appealed to Christian and American ideals and
won growing support from the federal government and Northern whites.

In 1963, Bayard Rustin and A. Philip Randolph led the massive March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom; the event’s grand finale was King’s 
famous
“I Have a Dream” speech. Two hundred and fifty thousand people
gathered outside the Lincoln Memorial to hear the stirring speech.
