Remembering Martin Luther King | #politicianofthemonth

In January, we are dedicating the entire month to Martin Luther King, as our Politician Of The Month. He was one of history’s most remarkable and powerful political figures, a person with incredible strength and charisma. His words transcended space and time, representing a milestone in politics. So much so, his vision, his image and overall principles are reigning over the Internet.

For many, Martin Luther King represented hope. He had a groundbreaking impact on race relations in the United States of America in the mid 1950s. He advocated for race equality and civil rights his entire life, playing an important role in ending the legal segregation of African-American citizens in the Southern America and other areas of the country. The creation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 were highly influenced by him and his principles. After a lifetime of dedication and fight against racism and ignorance, he won the Nobel Prize for peace in 1964, among several other honors.

Martin Luther King most definitely represents one of the world’s universal role models. A human being whose core principles always consisted of honesty, balance and freedom. An amazing combination of strength and empathy that made it through thick and thin and managed to change the course of history. There is not one biography on the Internet that does not praise MLK’s accomplishments in terms of race equality and civil rights.

In the end, his actions speak for themselves. And for that, let us all take a moment and remember his infamous speech “I have a dream”. One of the most remarkable examples in the history of political and social rhetoric, his speech conquered the whole world.

His image will always represent an example of empathy, respect and honesty for our entire Majoritas team. Working with a global team is always a challenge, but human connections are everything in any field, whether we’re talking about digital marketing or politics.
