Martin Luther King Jr.'s life had a seismic impact on race relations in the United States. Years after his death, he is the most widely known African-American leader of his era. His life and work have been honored with a national holiday, schools and public buildings named after him, and a memorial on Independence Mall in Washington, D.C.

As head of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference he played a pivotal role in ending the legal segregation of African-American citizens in the South and other areas of the nation. In January 1957, Martin Luther King Jr., Ralph Abernathy, and 60 ministers and civil rights activists founded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference to harness the moral authority and organizing power of black churches.

He was the force behind the creation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. King received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, among several other honors.

His life was also controversial. Militant blacks did not support him in the end citing his passivity. He was under government surveillance at one time and suggested his involvement in inappropriate relationships and communist influences. As time has passed, there is a more balanced and comprehensive assessment of his life, portraying him as a complex figure: flawed, fallible and limited in his control over the mass movements with which he was associated, yet a visionary leader who was deeply committed to achieving social justice through nonviolent means.

Malcolm X was a prominent black nationalist leader who served as a spokesman for the Nation of Islam during the 1950s and '60s. Due largely to his efforts, the Nation of Islam grew from a mere 400 members at the time he was released from prison in 1952 to 40,000 members by 1960.

Articulate, passionate and a naturally gifted and inspirational orator, Malcolm X exhorted blacks to cast off the shackles of racism "by any means necessary," including violence. The fiery civil rights leader broke with the group shortly before his assassination, February 21, 1965, at the Audubon Ballroom in Manhattan, where he had been preparing to deliver a speech.

Medgar Evers was an African-American civil rights activist whose murder drew national attention. Born in MS, he served in World War II before going to work for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

After attempting to segregate the University of Mississippi Law School in 1954, he became the NAACP field secretary in MS. Evers was subjected to threats as the most visible civil rights leader in the state, and he was shot to death in June 1963.

Following his murder, in December 1990, Byron De La Beckwith was again indicted for the murder of Medgar Evers. After a number of appeals, the Mississippi Supreme Court finally ruled in favor of a 3rd trial in April 1993. 10 months later, testimony began before a racially mixed jury of 8 blacks and 4 whites. In February 1994, nearly 31 years after Evers’ death, Beckwith was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. He died in January 2001 at the age of 80.
