On Jan. 19, Americans will pause to reflect upon the legacy of iconic civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., some 48 years after his assassination. Given the passage of time there are important details of his life that have either been forgotten—or never known—particularly by young people who were not yet born when he came to national prominence.
Author Sati Achath, who profiled Dr. King in his newly released book, 12 Qualities of Highly Successful People, holds him up as an example of an individual who was willing to risk physical hardships, failure and even death to achieve his dream of equal rights for African Americans.
Achath can answer such questions as:
* What name was Martin Luther King Jr. born with? Why did he change it?
* What made his winning the Noble Peace Prize so significant?
* Which public figures inspired him the most?
* What seven traits did he exemplify that made him so committed to civil rights?
* What steps can anyone take to be more like Dr. King?
