Transcript of Martin Luther King JR and Nelson Mandela

My UOI summative assessment on Martin Luther King JR. and Nelson Mandela. Enjoy! This is Martin Luther King JR, a hero that changed the face of America and fought for human rights. And this is Nelson Mandela, a savior to his country and his legacy that has influenced millions for fighting human rights. Martin Luther King JR was born January 15, 1929 Martin Luther King JR was born January 15, 1929 Martin Luther King JR He didn´t know until he turned 6 that he couldn't play with white people. In college, he went to Crozer Theological Seminary in Chester, Pennsylvania. King married Coretta Scott in 1958, giving birth to four children Here is some information about martin luther king JR's early life and his family In 1963, Martin was locked behind bars, 'proven' to be guilty of crimes against the law. Was assassinated in April 4th, 1968 And here is a little bit about Nelson Mendella's life. ;) Was born July 18, 1918. Was born in Mvezo, a small village located in Umtata Was the first of his 13 siblings to go to school. At age 19, he took an intrest in boxing He was thrown in jail just because of the color of his skin and was in jail for 18 whole years! In November 1993, he was elected prezident for five-years & Similarities Differences... Martin Luther King JR. Nelson Mandela Martin Luther King JR. Nelson Mandela Both are very inspiring men. They both won the Nobel peace prize. MLK JR. wanted to make everything as peacful as he could. But Nelson was often included in violent operations. MLK JR. is deceased, but Nelson still lives to this day. Both men have fought for balck prople's rights. MLK JR. was a minister and Nelson held a criminal record. Both have gone to jail at least once in their lives. Now here are some of thier famous (or not-so-famous) speeches, starting with Martin Luther King JR. "I have a dream" speech. "I've been to the mountaintops" speech MLK's Speeches (two examples) Nelson Mandela's speeches (two examples) www.history-timelines.org.uk You might want to scroll down for Martin's timeline, too :-/ Before I go on and tell you about them, here are the human rights themselves. Human righs are things that all people have, but are sometimes taken away because of the government. Human rights are in total of 30, and each make everything about the world a better place. Human rights are the things that make the united states united. the things that make the united nation the united nation. the things that make everything a nice, fair world. Here are some websites for further information on human rights: http://www.youthforhumanrights.org, http://www.historymole.com, http://www.humanrights.com/edukitform.html, or http://www.timetoast.com.

Be safe, be fair, & be respectful It is a need to have no harmful or hazardous items or games at DIS It is important that everyone gets treated equally at DIS, even if it is the smallest of things. It is critical that everyone MUST respect others; after all, it is a human right that everyone is born free and equal ;-) I would NOT add any more human rights because... #1: As much as I would like more human rights, I don't want our world to get to harsh or or unfair. #2: There are already enough wars specificly for human rights, and adding more would increase the chances of wars and lives being lost. #3: At the cause of adding more human rights, some governments might not accept these new rules.
