Young Martin Luther King Jr. skipped both 9th and 11th grade at Booker T. Washington High School in his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. In 1944 Martin, whose given name was actual Michael, (it was changed as a tribute to the 16th century German theologian and religious reformer, Martin Luther) entered college at the young age of 15! He was awarded a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Moorehouse College when he was just 19 years old. Martin Luther King Jr. went on to win the esteemed Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 (the youngest winner at the time) for his nonviolent racial prejudice resistance movement which directly resulted in the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1968.
