A tribute to Martin Luther King

Third year

Martin Luther King's words still hold a stunning power and grace more than 40 years after his death in Memphis on April 4, 1968. In 2001, in honor of the holiday commemorating King's birthday, TIME.com presented a gallery of photographs by famed civil rights movement photographer Flip Schulke, accompanied by King's own words on nonviolence, race and his dream for the future of America. Click here to see the gallery (10 photos).

Go here to see Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. rare and unpublished photographs of the civil rights movement (25 photos).
