While Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was fighting tirelessly for civil rights, other events were taking place that have changed life in America significantly. For example, in 1966:
- Lunar Orbiter 1 changed perspectives by taking a picture of Earth from outer space
- The terms ‘miniskirt’ and ‘Third World’ were added to American dictionaries
- The endangered species list was created
- The Supreme Court established Miranda rights for criminal suspects
- America put 400,000 troops in Vietnam
Dr. King said that “human progress never rolls in on the wheels of inevitability. It comes through the tireless efforts and the persistent work of dedicated individuals.” No matter what issues are most important to you – political, economic, or social – it’s important to let your voice be heard.
