We're bringing Wordsmith Wednesday to you a little early this week in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.,  pastor, PhD, Nobel Prize winner and well-known leader of nonviolent demonstrations during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s.

Dr. King was the youngest man to have received the Nobel Peace Prize. When notified of his selection, he announced that he would turn over the prize money of $54,123 to the furtherance of the Civil Rights Movement.

On the evening of April 4, 1968, while standing on the balcony of his motel room in Memphis, Tennessee, where he was to lead a protest march in sympathy with striking garbage workers of that city, he was assassinated. Today we observe his birthday of January 15. He would have been 82 years old.

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

Now, I say to you today my friends, even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream. I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
