Dr Martin Luther King Junior’s Story in Birmingham Prison

I just heard Dr Martin Luther King Jr’s son, Martin III, say that when Dr King was held in Birmingham jail, at the height of the civil rights movement, rather than be despondent at his own state, he‘s said to have discussed with the prison guards their woes of low wages and how it’s time to improve their lives.

Reveals the deep commitment to resolving the common man’s problems. He certainly embodied a true leader’s characteristics - hope, compassion and trust.
