Transcript of Martin Luther King Jr
Martin Luther King Jr's life
Martin was born Micheal Luther king jr, in Atlanta Georgia, on January 15,1929. He became the third member of the family and like all of them served as an pastor of the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. King was a gifted student, who attended segregated public schools at the age of 15 After graduating in 1948, King entered Crozer Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania, where he earned a Bachelor of Divinity degree, and was elected president of his predominantly white senior class. King then went to Boston University, where he earned a doctorate in systematic theology. In Boston he met Coretta Scott, who would be his lifetime partner in marriage and his campaign for civil rights.He was already in the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, America’s best African-American organization. When he moved to Montgomery he was a member of its executive committee, and in December 1955 he led a 382-day boycott of Montgomery’s segregated public bus system. During the next 11 years, King
would speak over 2,500 times at public events, traveling over millions of miles. He also wrote articles and five books to spread the message farther. In 1963, he was a leader in the massive civil rights protests at Birmingham, Alabama, that got the attension of the entire world and how they desired the change in descrimination.
One main obstacle Martin Luther King Jr and millions of other African Americans faced during their time was segregation. Dark skinned people were not legally allowed to share the same services, facilities, and opportunities such as medical care, housing, education, employment, and transportation as white people. This immense obstacle impacted Martin and many other people and sparked compassion within to end this segregation. Martin believed all people were equal.
During Martin Luther king Jr's legacy he spoke over 2500 times in various public events about the end of segregation and how all people were created equal by god. King also wrote many articles on the civil rights movement and how segregation was deleterious to the nation's development. King didn't stop there, but continued to help stop segregation by writing 5 books to further spread the message. All king's efforts will be a crucial factor to the termination of segregation.
I can connect with Martin Luther King Jr because I too believe that all people are created equal and should have the same privileges regardless of their physical features and culture. We are all humans and therefore we are all the same. Thus, we should live together in peace and prosper.
I plan to further aid Martin luther King Jr's cause by treating everyone kindly and with respect. I shall also raise awareness and spread the message .
