Memorable Family Pictures of Martin Luther King Jnr

Most people are familiar with the 'I HAVE A DREAM'  Speech by  Rev. Martin Luther King Jr, he is also known as a freedom fighter, humanitarian and as one of the greatest Orator in American History.
 We all know how he relentlessly sacrificed and eventually laid down his life for the freedom of the Black Race in America, unlike some leaders who got carried away by such a huge responsibility at the expense of their family, MLK never did such.
It is on this note that I invite you to view this sequence of photos showing the 'family' side of MLK..

After Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is freed from jail under a $2000 appeal bond, he is greeted by his wife Coretta and children, Marty and Yoki, at the airport in Chamblee, Georgia on October 27, 1960.
