Martin luther king jr is one of the known icon in the Human rights history, he is the most respected leader around the African-American community, they once put their hope on this particular man, because no man would defend their rights like how Martin luther king jr did. Up until know, he is still remembered as one of the people champion of all time. Here at IEPOV we already did compile some fact about him

  • Born On January 15, 1929
  • From Atlanta, Georgia
  • Religion Christian 
  • Career: Prominent leader of The African-American Civil Rights Movement (1955–1968)

He is indeed a sign of peace to the African-American and in fact a global symbol of peace for the world, without him this world that we live today, wouldn't not be the same.
Nowadays, we need more leader like him, a leader that would go for anything to defend the rights of the people, even death!
