As you well know, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was born 84 years ago today (Jan 15th) in Atlanta. But did you know that he was born with the name Michael? In this awesome photo (doesn’t he look adorable in his hat?), Dr. King and Mrs. Coretta Scott King march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama to protest the lack of voting rights for African Americans in 1965.
