On October 14, 1964 Georgian-born, Baptist Minister Martin Luther King, Jr. was awarded the Nobel Peace prize for his nonviolent resistance to racial discrimination. Influenced by the philosophies and practices of Mohandas Ghandi, King organized the Montgomery Bus Boycott, the first of a series of peaceful protests aimed at ending racial segregation. He donated the Nobel prize money to the Civil Rights Movement and continued to fight for the rights of poor Americans until his assassination by James Earl Ray on April 4, 1968.
