Martin Luther King Jr. (born as Michael King Jr., January 15, 1929April 4, 1968) was an African-American baptist minister and a leader of the so-called American Civil Rights Movement. King was successful in organizing Blacks in marches and demonstrations in ending segregation in the South. He was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee in 1968 by James Earl Ray.

Today he has almost acquired the status of a saint. See the "External links" section on various criticisms of this view such as being a Communist.

The "Martin Luther King Jr. Day" on 15 January is an official American federal holiday marking the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. It has been criticized for various reasons such as the FBI having sealed its records on Martin Luther King until 2027.[1]

January 6, 1964, was a long day for Martin Luther King Jr. He spent the morning seated in the reserved section of the Supreme Court, listening as lawyers argued New York Times Co. v. Sullivan, a landmark case rising out of King's crusade against segregation in Alabama. The minister was something of an honored guest: Justice Arthur Goldberg quietly sent down a copy of Kings account of the Montgomery bus boycott, "Stride Toward Freedom," asking for an autograph. That night King retired to his room at the Willard Hotel. There FBI bugs reportedly picked up 14 hours of party chatter, the clinking of glasses and the sounds of illicit sex--including King's cries of "I'm f--ing for God" and "I'm not a Negro tonight!"

Note: What is not mentioned in this article is that Martin Luther King was having sex with three White women, one of whom he brutally beat while screaming the above mentioned quotes. Much of the public information on King's use of church money to hire prostitutes and his beating them came from King's close personal friend, Rev. Ralph Abernathy (pictured above), in his 1989 book, "And the walls came tumbling down."
