Rev. Martin Luther King(Look up 1000)-"The Greatest Album on Earth" "Freedom At Last"-Recorded Live at Washington D.C.-August 28th,1963-LP. Tracklist A1 Freedom At Last (Part 1) B1 Freedom At Last (Part 2)................... Martin Luther King, Jr. was an African-American clergyman who advocated social change through non-violent means. A powerful speaker and a man of great spiritual strength, he shaped the American civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s until his murder in 1968. Martin Luther King, Jr. was pastor of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama from 1954-59. There he led blacks in the Montgomery bus boycott of 1955-56, an action inspired by the arrest of Rosa Parks when she refused to give up her seat on a public bus. Racial segregation on city buses was ruled unconstitutional in 1956; the boycott ended in success, and King had become a national figure. King returned to his home town of Atlanta, Georgia in 1959 and became co-pastor with his father of the Ebenezer Baptist Church, a position he held until his death. On the 100th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation in 1963, King organized a march on Washington, D.C. that drew 200,000 people demanding equal rights for minorities. Martin Luther King won the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize, becoming at the time the youngest recipient ever. His writings included Stride Toward Freedom (1958, a history of the Montgomery bus boycott), Why We Can't Wait (1963) and Where Do We Go From Here? Chaos or Community (1967). King was shot to death in 1968 while visiting Memphis, Tennessee. James Earl Ray, a prison escapee with a shady past, confessed to the killing in March of 1969, was convicted and then sentenced to 99 years in prison. Ray later recanted but was never successful in getting a new trial and died in jail in 1998.
