The picture was taken 1961 and it shows Dr Martin Luther King. Dr King was born on the 15th of January 1929 and lived in America...where every year there is a public holiday to remember and celebrate his life. Today is Martin Luther King day!
At the time Martin Luther King lived, much of America did not allow the same rights to all its citizens - for example, a black person might not be allowed to go to the same places or do the same things as a white person. Dr King devoted his life to finding peaceful ways to struggle against that injustice and became a figurehead for what is known as the Civil Rights Movement.
