“I had a Dream” Martin Luther King Jr.- In Memoria 2023

Martin Luther King Jr. was only 19 when Mohan Das Karamchand Gandhi was assassinated in 1948. He would later visit India in 1959 and be forever transformed to bend the arc of history with the ensuing Civil Rights movement in the United States.
