Today in 1964: Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. is awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
From King’s speech in Oslo, quote “After contemplation, I conclude that this award which I receive on behalf of that movement is profound recognition that nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral question of our time – the need for man to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to violence and oppression. Civilization and violence are antithetical concepts.”
