Transcript of Martin Luther King Jr.
Martin Luther King Jr.
- Martin Luther King Jr. was born on January 15, 1929, and he didn't even know how many lives he would change in years to come.
1963- August 28- Martin Luther
King Jr. delivered his famous
"I Have A Dream" speech.
1964- December 10th- He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
- Martin Luther King Jr.
was assassinated by James
Earl Ray. King was only 39.
A national holiday was made in King's honor, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which is on January 20th of every year.
-Martin Luther attends
He graduated from college and started to attend Crozer Theological Seminary, at age 19. He became a Bachelor of Divinity there, which is a Postgraduate academic degree and awards him for taking the course for divinity.
- King's speech was one of the biggest impacts on the Civil Rights Movement and how the whites treated the blacks.
A thing that he did to change the way that black people were viewed was he was a part of the bus boycott when Rosa Parks was arrested. He helped the Civil Rights Movement because he stood up for what he believed in, just like with the speech.
- Today's society has everyone equal, no matter the color of skin, the age, the gender, etc.
Now black people are like everyone else, and he helped impact that a lot.
Why He Was The One To Do The Thing That He Did
People like him back then were treated unequally, and no one stood up for themselves, so why was he the one to make this change?
When Martin was a boy, his father was a reverand. He saw his father stand up to a policeman. The policeman called his father "boy" instead of "reverand". This caused young King to want to make everyone equal so that there wouldn't be any judgement to anyone.
He influenced the society back
then by his actions. He was well
known at his church. Martin also
joined the Bus Boycott. That is
a whole other story. But he slowly
started to build up his reputation.
People were noticing how inspiring
he was. They wanted to be like him.
So more people protested. And
Eventually we got to where we are
-Martin Luther King Jr. gave his most famous speech that was about how everyone was created equal, and that we should be treated that way.
