Martin Luther King Jr. was a Baptist minister and civil-rights activist, who led the Civil Rights Movement in the United States from the mid-1950s until his death by assassination in 1968. He is the most widely known African-American leader of his era.
Young King had an older sister, Willie Christine, and a younger brother, Alfred Daniel Williams King. He skipped both the ninth and eleventh grades, and entered Morehouse College in Atlanta at age 15. During his last year in seminary, Martin Luther King Jr. came under the guidance of Morehouse College President Benjamin E. Mays who influenced King’s spiritual development. After being accepted at several colleges for his doctoral study, including Yale and Edinburgh in Scotland, King enrolled at Boston University.
During the work on his doctorate, Martin Luther King Jr. met Coretta Scott, an aspiring singer and musician, at the New England Conservatory school in Boston. They were married in June 1953 and had four children, Yolanda, Martin Luther King III, Dexter Scott, and Bernice. At only 25 years old in 1955, King completed his Ph.D. and earned his degree.
