Martin Luther King

on January 12, 2014

postcards1_2_4This wonderful card comes from Amanda in the USA and shows one of the most inspiring people in modern history – Martin Luther King, who was born in her city of Atlanta, Georgia. Famous for his enormous role in the Civil Rights movement in the US, he delivered his unforgettable ‘I Have A Dream’ speech on the 100th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation. Sadly, he was assassinated in 1968 in Memphis, Tennessee before he could see the full effect his work had had. A remarkable man and a fantastic postcard.
