The great civil rights leader Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., had a Jewish friend. His name was Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, and he was one of the most prominent Jewish theologians in the United States in the 20th Century. In January 1963, the two men met at a conference in Chicago on "Religion and Race" organized by the National Conference of Christians and Jews. They became allies and friends. Two years later, they walked together in the famous civil rights march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. The march leveraged congressional support to protect the rights of African Americans through the passage of the Voting Rights Act. When Dr. King was murdered, Rabbi Heschel spoke at his funeral.
