In American History there is no honor greater than leading our nation as president or defending our nation’s ideals as war heroes—except advocating the civil rights of all Americans. Martin Luther King, Jr. is the only citizen activist memorialized in the National Mall alongside presidents and war heroes for his activism, which ushered America into an era where all citizens could experience Constitutional freedoms.
Resisting the racism of his era with peaceful protests, Dr. King influenced legislation protecting the ideals of our nation’s founding fathers—that all men are created equal. Part of the Civil Rights Collection, this embroidered patch of honor displays Dr. King’s memorial and the Stone of Hope. It identifies the African American who stood up to discrimination so people of all colors could achieve the American dream.
- Dr. King won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1963 for his role in the Civil Rights Movement
