Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is widely considered the most influential leader of the American civil rights movement. He fought to overturn Jim Crow segregation laws and eliminate social and economic differences between blacks and whites. His speeches and famous quotes, especially those written while he served a jail sentence for civil disobedience, inspire millions today.
