The life of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. is closely linked to Realtors. In the summer of 1966, he moved to Chicago and engaged in a series of marches, appealing to real estate practitioners in the city to end discriminatory housing practices. King's call for open housing led to the 1968 passage of the Fair Housing Act.The next time you're Winter Park FL, visit the serene Martin Luther King, Jr. Park.
