HomeworkSpot > Martin Luther King, Jr.


What important prize did Martin Luther King, Jr. win in 1964?

Martin Luther King, Jr. was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace in December of 1964. Less than 6 months prior to the ceremony in Oslo, Norway, the Civil Rights Act had been signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson. The legislation gave the federal government the authority to enforce desegregation of public accommodations, and it outlawed discrimination in publicly owned facilities, as well as in employment.

Read the full text of the Civil Rights Act on PBS's site.
