Biografie Martin Luther King

Graphic News

April 4, 2018 -- Martin Luther King Jr. -- one of the pivotal leaders of the American civil rights movement –– was assassinated April 4, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee.

Educated as a Baptist minister, King led the Montgomery Bus Boycott which ended segregation on public transport in Alabama, and organized the 1963 March on Washington, where he delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech. A year later King became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. (Story: Duncan Mil/ Joanna Griffin)

21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
