I’m always amazed when I hear little known Black History facts. Whenever I hear or see something about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. it gets my undivided attention.

Martin Luther King and Coretta Scott were married June 18, 1953 in the Scott’s backyard by his Rev Martin Luther King Sr.

Mr. and Mrs. Martin Luther King spent their wedding night in the back room of a funeral parlor because the local hotels of Marion refused to rent rooms to blacks.

However they did get to take a second honeymoon in Mexico five years later.  This is of the most interesting articles I have read about Dr. King. Read it here.
