  • 3. Introduction
    In this presentation we are going to talk about very brave men, that changed in how the world thinks about black people, compare their great speeches, their biographies and their political ideas.
  • 4. Biography of Martin Luther King Jr.
    Martin Luther King, Jr., was a great man who worked for racial equality in the United States of America. He was born on January 15, 1929, in Atlanta, Georgia. Both his father and grandfather were ministers. After graduating from college and getting married, Martin Luther King Jr. became a minister and moved to Alabama. During the 1950's, Martin Luther King became active in the movement for civil rights and racial equality. He participated in the Montgomery, Alabama, bus boycott and many other peaceful demonstrations that protested the unfair treatment of African-Americans. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. Martin was assassinated on April 4, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee by James Earl Ray . Commemorating the life of a important leader, we celebrate Martin Luther King Day each year in January.
  • 5. Biography of Nelson Mandela
    Nelson Rohihlahla Mandela, born July 18, 1918, became the first black president of South Africa on May 10, 1994. He helped form the Youth League of the African National Congress (ANC) in 1944. In 1961 he abandoned peaceful protest and became head of the ANC's new military wing. Sentenced for more than 20 years imprisonment in 1964, Mandela came to symbolize black political aspirations and was named head of the ANC after his release on February 11, 1990. He received the Nobel Peace Prize for negotiating South Africa's peaceful transition to multiracial democracy and a year later he became president of South Africa. After the ANC victory in the April 1994 elections, Mandela worked to decrease racial tensions and he provide services to the victims of apartheid. He united both blacks and whites trough the Rugby sport. Mandela has announced that he will not run for reelection in 1999.
