Street Art: Martin Luther King, Jr.

At age 33, King pressed the case for civil rights with President John Kennedy. At age 34, King galvanized the nation with his iconic "I Have a Dream" speech. At age 35, King won the Nobel Peace Prize. At age 39, King was assassinated. King left a legacy of hope that will never be terminated. The influence of his dream surrounds us today.

Below are some examples of street art involving Martin Luther King, Jr. that readers have sent to me. Feel free to comment with your thoughts on Martin Luther King, Jr. and art inspired by his dream. If you recognize any of the images below please tell me the name of the artist.

Take care, Stay true,
