Son of a Preacher Man
Martin Luther King, Jr. was born Jan. 15, 1929 in Atlanta, GA to Rev. Martin Luther King, Sr. and Alberta Williams King.
He studied theology, eventually earning a Ph.D and following in his father's footsteps, becoming a preacher. Eventually, the two Reverend Kings would co-pastor Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta until the younger King's death in 1968.
