NEW YORK, 19 JANUARY 2009 - Increasingly considered by historians as one of the founding fathers of democracy in the United States and an influence on the empirical gains of civil rights through non-violence in many countries from Northern Ireland to China, millions of people across the world now honor the legacy of service and social justice to humanity by the American civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (15 January 1929 - 4 April 1968).
