The fifth day of #DEBlackHistory topic is faith in which we are paying homage to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. from Atlanta, Georgia. Dr. King was a minister who became one of the biggest civil rights activists to play one of the biggest roles in ending the segregation of African Americans in the United States. He fought for peace and fairness among all races by beginning the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. After winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 for his many achievements towards racial equality , King was tragically assassinated in 1968.
