Historical Peace Prize laureates: Martin Luther King jr. 1964

Join us as we delve into the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and get to know one of the most important figures of the 20th century.

Time: 10 Apr 2024 16:00 - 17:00 CEST
Place: The Nobel Peace Center

This year marks the 60th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. The civil rights advocate and Baptist pastor was only 35 years old when he landed at Fornebu on December 8, 1964. Two days later, he accepted the Nobel Peace Prize medal for his "nonviolent struggle for civil rights for the African American population."

The man behind one of the world's most famous speeches was a visionary leader who spearheaded a movement that ended the legal segregation of Black Americans. Sixty years after his visit to Oslo, he remains one of the Nobel Peace Prize laureates that we at the Nobel Peace Center experience the greatest interest in.
