Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Was A 3-Time Grammy Nominee

Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., whose birthday we celebrate on Monday (Jan. 18), received the Nobel Peace Prize for 1964 and was Time’s man of the year for 1963. It’s not as widely known, but he was also a (posthumous) Grammy winner for best spoken word recording. King received three Grammy nominations in that category: one in his lifetime and two after his assassination on April 4, 1968.
