Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the most famous civil rights activists of our time. The Baptist minister believed in nonviolent civil disobedience, most notably delivering his ” I Have a Dream” Speech in 1963.

His assassination in 1968 was followed by wide-spread riots across the nation.

Today, we celebrate the birth of King as well as his civil rights activism.

I just started my second semester of college, so I decided to take a course on public speaking. This day has really convinced me into watching some of King’s speeches.

I can honestly say that his speaking skills are beyond belief. His ability to motivate a crowd- a nation- was one of his most admirable traits.

I also wanted to take a moment and look at the style of the 1960s- a crucial time in King’s life and the civil rights movement.

Here are some of my favorite fashions, music, people etc. of the 1960s.
