Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr visited the Gandhi family in India in 1959, and he went on to dedicate himself to the principles of non-violence

On August 28, 1963, from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, he delivered one of the greatest speeches of the 20th century to over two hundred and fifty thousand civil rights supporters;

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character."
