Summary
The evening Martin Luther King, Jr. died, he asked his friend, musician Ben Bunch, to play "Take My Hand, Precious Lord." It was a prophetic request by one of the world's greatest social reformers. King was born just months before the start of the Great Depression, and he spent his earliest years in Atlanta, Georgia. During his life, King saw firsthand the rampant discrimination that coursed through Southern culture. When Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat to a white man on a bus, it spurred Dr. King to action. It was in this moment that he realized he had to do everything in his power to help the nation's impoverished, disabled, and disenfranchised establish an equal footing in all aspects of life. His drive to attain equality for all American citizens, regardless of creed or race, has inspired activists the world over to adapt nonviolent forms of protest. Prior to the MLK monument dedication ceremony in 2011, King's son, Martin Luther King, III, wrote a piece that appeared in the Washington Post. His father, he wrote, would have fought just as hard for women's and gay rights as he did for people of color, because he believed everyone had the right to enjoy basic freedoms: "My father also supported human rights, freedom and self-determination for all people, including Latino agricultural workers, Native Americans, and the millions of impoverished white men and women who were treated as second-class citizens
