He first began to be well known in 1955 when he led a protest against the way black people were segregated on buses. That time black people had to sit at the back of the bus separate from white people. He soon became world famous when he told his supporters, and the people who were against equal rights, that only peaceful ways should be used to solve the problem. In 1964, black people finally were allowed to vote in elections. In this year, he was given the Nobel Peace Prize.
At the age of thirty-five, Martin Luther King, Jr., was the youngest man to have received the Nobel Peace Prize. When notified of his selection, he announced that he would turn over the prize money of $54,123 to the furtherance of the civil rights movement.
On the evening of April 4, 1968, while standing on the balcony of his motel room in Memphis, Tennessee, he was assassinated. In 1986, the United States created a national holiday, commonly known as Martin Luther King Day, in his honor. It is celebrated on the third Monday of the month of January; around the time of his birthday.
