Nobel Peace Prize Winner John Hume

Today, Nobel Peace Prize winner John Hume is delivering the keynote address at Boston University's celebration of Martin Luther King Junior's birthday.

Hume shared the 1998 Nobel Award with David Trimble for their work towards peace in Northern Ireland.

Since he first joined his own country's civil rights movement in the 1960s, Hume says Dr. King has been his inspiration.
