The Kings at Home
Born in Atlanta, Martin Luther King Jr. moved to Montgomery, Ala., with his new wife Coretta in 1955 after King accepted a position as pastor of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church. King met Coretta while he was studying for his Ph.D. at Boston University and they were married in June 1953. Yolanda, their first child, above, was born in November 1955.

Man of Letters
During the years King and his family lived in Montgomery, they occupied the parsonage affiliated with the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church. Many of the sermons that King delivered from the pulpit of the church — inspiring those participating in the Montgomery bus boycott — were composed there.

Head of the Table
During the boycott, King emerged as a powerful and inspirational leader. As news of the boycott spread, donations supporting those involved poured in and King's words were heard by millions. Eventually, after 12 months, a federal court ruled that laws requiring segregated buses were unconstitutional and, on Dec. 20, 1956, King and other civil rights leaders assumed seats on the first integrated bus in Montgomery's history.

In 1960, King and his family moved to the city of his birth, where King could work more closely with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. The family rented a small house in a less-than-fashionable neighborhood and in the dining room King hung a photo of Mohandas Gandhi, whose message of nonviolent protest so greatly influenced him.
