This Day in History: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.                 

 

On this day, October 14, 1964, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. received the Nobel Peace Prize for “his nonviolent resistance to racial prejudice in America.” Dr. King, at 35 years old, was the youngest person to receive the award at the time, and influenced the people of the United States to peacefully claim their rights as American citizens, regardless of race.
