Homage For A Great Man

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King

I would like to give homage to this very special man. For very few Americans have had as great an impact on our nation as an eloquent Southern Baptist minister from Atlanta, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. A national leader in the civil rights movement, Dr. King gained worldwide prominence with his "I Have A Dream" speech and in 1964 was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his unwavering commitment to equal rights for all Americans regardless of race, creed, national origin or religious belief.

In Georgia, Dr. King holds the honor of being the first African-American to have their portrait hung in the halls of the State Capitol. The portrait was dedicated by then-Governor Jimmy Carter in 1974 and is in a prominent location adjacent to the Office of the Governor on the second floor of the Capitol.



I'll be back with all you Mac news tomorrow!!
