On January 15th 1929 Martin Luther King Jr was born. He had flaws like all of us, but boy did he make a difference helping usher in mindfulness of equality. MLK was just 19 years old on his way to seminary school in Atlanta when this photo was taken.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
Martin Luther King Jr. (born Michael King Jr.) was born January 15th, 1929, in Atlanta, Georgia to Baptist minister Martin Luther King (born Michael King) and his wife, Alberta. He was one of the most prominent leaders in the civil rights movement from 1955 until his assassination in 1968, preaching Christian values and social equality for all races. King advanced civil rights for people of color in the United States through nonviolence and civil disobedience. With inspiration from both his own Christian beliefs and the nonviolent activism of Gandhi, he was able to lead targeted, and most importantly nonviolent, resistance against Jim Crow laws and other forms of discrimination in the United States. He is most famously known for being one of the leaders of the The March on Washington in 1963, where he delivered his famous Martin Luther King Jr. Last Speech "I Have a Dream" on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in DC. See Passage from the "I Have a Dream Speech" for part of the speech.

I want to build a place where my son can meet his great-grandparents. My grandmother Marian Joyce (Benning) Kroetch always wanted to meet her great-grandchildren, but she died just a handful of years before my son's birth. So while she didn't have the opportunity to meet him, at least he will be able to know her. For more information about what we're building see About AncientFaces. For information on the folks who build and support the community see Daniel - Founder & Creator.
My father's side is full blood Sicilian and my mother's side is a combination of Welsh, Scottish, German and a few other European cultures. One of my more colorful (ahem black sheep) family members came over on the Mayflower. He was among the first to be hanged in the New World for a criminal offense he made while onboard the ship.
