[2013] Sophie Austin: Martin Luther King Jr. and Black Slavery in America

Martin Luther King Jr. and Black Slavery in America

To most people, Martin Luther King Jr. is as inspirational as one gets. He put us on the path to solving the racial feud between blacks and whites, which dramatically changed the history of human kind and who we talk to today. He had a dream, and he achieved it.

"I have a dream..."

Dr. King became a civil rights activist early on in his career and led many rallies and groups such as the Montgomery Bus Boycott, and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.

Martin Luther King Jr. is one of the most famous Global Citizens that ever lived. With his non-violent gestures against segregation, he led many movements to a free American country. He is admired by many, and has made an independant nation for all colours.

In 1963, Martin Luther King led the march on Washington and was to give the “I Have a Dream” speech, which was broadcasted to millions of people. It is one of the most famous speeches known to man. With this, he established his reputation as one of the greatest public speakers in American history. He also established his reputation as a radical.

Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee in 1968. His death caused riot outbreaks all over the country. He took to his grave many honourable awards such as the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the Nobel Peace Prize, and the Congressional Gold Medal. He had an influence on many, and not just black citizens.
