Meet Kenyan man Who Dated Martin Luther King Jr’s Wife

Martin Luther King Jr. was an American Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1955 until his assassination in 1968.

King was born Michael King Jr. on January 15, 1929, in Atlanta, Georgia, the second of three children to the Reverend Michael King Sr. and Alberta King

In his adolescent years, he initially felt resentment against whites due to the “racial humiliation” that he, his family, and his neighbors often had to endure in the segregated South

King won the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality through nonviolent resistance. In 1965, he helped organize two of the three Selma to Montgomery marches.

King married Coretta Scott on June 18, 1953, on the lawn of her parents’ house in her hometown of Heiberger, Alabama. They became the parents of four children

Dr. Julius Gikonyo Kiano dated Coretta Scott, the future wife of American civil rights crusader Dr Martin Luther King Jr.

The two went separate ways after five years since Gikonyo was “too bright” and “too political” and would return to his country after graduation

Later Gikonyo divorced and disinherited his first African American wife Earnestine Hammond and married his second wife Jane Mumbi.
