This double-sided t-shirt celebrates the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and thanks him for his important contributions to the civil rights movement of the 1960s. The shirt references two of King's famous speeches, including his most well-known, the "I Have a Dream" speech. It also references his sermon "The Drum Major Instinct", which included the quote, "Yes if you want to say that I was a drum major, say that I was a drum major for justice."

Martin Luther King Jr. was both a Baptist minister and an activist, just like his father before him. He focused his fight against discrimination around nonviolence and civil disobedience, and many people remember the marches he led, which advocated for things like desegregation, labor rights, and active suffrage. He was a key figure during the 1963 March on Washington, which is where he delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. As the 60s progressed, King also expanded his activism to address poverty, capitalism, and the Vietnam War.

Fits like a modern unisex adult medium. There is a light spot on the back, see pics.
