Man of the YearJan. 3, 1964Martin Luther King Jr. returned to the cover of TIME as the magazine’s 36th Man of the Year, for 1963. The article paints a startlingly raw and human portrait of King, revealing that he attempted suicide twice before he turned 13 and initially rejected religion because he was embarrassed by “the shouting and the stamping.” After reading Henry David Thoreau’s essay “Civil Disobedience” in college, King changed his mind and embraced ministry as the best strategy for social change. The article chronicles King’s triumphs, from the Montgomery, Ala., bus boycott to the March on Washington.
