On this day, MLK's house in Montgomery, Alabama, was bombed by segregationists in revenge for success of the Montgomery Bus Boycott. It was enough force to blow out the windows of the house. When MLK heard of the bomb, he rushed home to find a mob of angry black men seeking to defend white police. MLK urged them to find peace in midst of the violent act with a short speech. No one was harmed, and no one was arrested.
