  3. 3. BRIEF INTRODUCTION • Born: January 15, 1929, Atlanta, Georgia, U.S. • Died (assassinated): April 4, 1968 (aged 39) Memphis, Tennessee, U.S. • Political movement: African-American Civil Rights Movement, Peace movement. • Awards: Nobel Peace Prize (1964) • Presidential Medal of Freedom (1977, after death), • Congressional Gold Medal (2004, after death)
  4. 4. WHO • Who is Martin Luther King Jr.? • Martin Luther King Jr. is an activist and less known as a Clergyman (a male priest or minister of a Christian church.) • He is one of the greatest public speakers in American history. • He is also the father of four children. • Martin Luther King Jr was also an amazing student and achieved lots in his early life. He skipped both grades nine and the twelve and entered Morehouse College at age fifteen without formally graduating from high school. • He became a pastor at the age of only 25 in 1954.
  5. 5. WHAT • What is Martin Luther King Jr. best known for? • Martin Luther King Jr. is best known for his African-American Civil Rights Movement and Peace movement. • Making a stand to advance civil rights using nonviolence. • In 1962, He organized nonviolent protests in Birmingham, Alabama, that received national attention on the news showing the brutal police response. • King also helped to organize the 1963 March on Washington, where he delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech. This speech is one of the most important moments he is remembered from.
  6. 6. WHEN • When did he make the most difference in the world? • I don’t think you could say there is a certain time Martin Luther King Jr made the most difference in the world, I think over the period of time the he was speaking and fighting for what he believed in even if it meant going to jail several times was when he made a difference. • I think not just him making a difference, but others being inspired by Martin to make a difference in the world was also a very big accomplishment.
  7. 7. WHERE • Where did he do his work? Speeches? • Martin Luther King Jr publicly spoke in many places all over America. Although he is best known for his I have a dream speech. • Another campaign that he was a part of that is well known is the Birmingham campaign, the Birmingham campaign is known because Martin Luther King Jr was arrested and jailed early in the campaign this was his 13th arrest.
  8. 8. WHY • Why did Martin Luther King Jr. do what he did? • Martin Luther King's faith was strongly based in Jesus' commandment of loving your neighbor as yourself, loving God above all, and loving your enemies, praying for them and blessing them. • His non-violent ways were also based in Jesus' teaching of putting the sword back into its place (Matthew 26:52). In his famous Letter from Birmingham Jail, King wants action with what he describes as Jesus' "extremist" love, and also quoted some other Christian pacifist authors, which was very usual for him. In his speech I've Been to the Mountaintop, he stated that he just wanted to do God's will.
  9. 9. HOW • How did Martin Luther King Jr change history? • Martin Luther King Jr changed history by supporting and speaking for African-American people using non-violence. • This lead to others doing similar and eventually freedom was almost accomplished for AfricanAmerican, I say almost because in parts of the US (and the world) there is still discrimination going on. Although it was far, far worse when Martin Luther King Jr. was alive.
  10. 10. SELF-REFECTION • I would give myself an exceeds expectations. I think I did well on this project because once I found my topic interesting it was easier to search and find information. Also I think I used good pictures and made a neat and clear PowerPoint. The Part of the project that I didn’t do well on was that I was behind in my work, thankful I got more interested so I could work without being completely bored. • I already knew some facts about Martin Luther King Jr. that’s way I choose him to do my project on. I knew that he helped African-Americans to get equally. A fact that was important that I did not know was that he did so using non-violence, almost everything else I learned was new information to me.
