Martin Luther King A Man who risked his life for the better of America Slide Show Presentation By: Cailey Mitchell Book: M.L.K. A Journey of a King
Martin Luther King Timeline of Courage April, 1944 On the way to school, one day the bus driver told him to “get up” for the white kids but he didn’t get up until his teacher told him it wasn’t worth the fight. That showed courage because he was risking getting in to big trouble or getting arrested just so he could stay seated. Pg. 26 He was threatened by phone calls telling him to leave town or else they would kill him. He stayed in town to work. That shows courage because he is staying in town even though he could be risking his and his families life.
Pg. 36 When a deranged black woman stabbed a letter opener into his chest he said “do not prosecute her heal her.” That shows courage because he is looking out for other peoples well beings besides his well being, when really he needed more help at the time. When he said “ Lord, I hope as a result of our struggle for freedom in Montgomery certainly I do not want to die. But if anyone has to die, let it be me. That shows courage because he would rather die and have freedom than not die and not have freedom. Pg.48 Pg. 64 When he said “nothing will stop me, not death threat, not a fourth child, nothing. That shows courage because he would ignore family and friends and things people don’t usually ignore just so we can all have peace. Timeline of Courage Continued
Pg. 70 When Martin Luther King said “I got so many people depending on me I got to march.” That showed courage because he was risking his life and his freedom to march for the people who depended on him. Pg. 74 When Martin Luther King sent a letter to the police station to tell them what they were doing was wrong. That showed courage because he stood up to the authority that did not share his beliefs in freedom. Pg. 79 Martin Luther King lead a march for jobs and freedom.

INSPIRING - BLUE
Every time a word came out of Martin Luther Kings mouth people would scream and cheer of happiness. “Preach on!” people would yell. “You know, my friends, there comes a time when people get tired of being trampled over by the iron feet of depression. People clapped there hands and stomped their feet and hollered for M.L.K to preach on.
LEADER - RED
When M.L.K. marched millions of people marched with him, when M.L.K. talked millions of people listened. “ M.L.K. refused to be bailed out of jail. If convicted I will refuse to pay the fine. I expect to spend Christmas in jail. I hope thousands will join me.”
DETERMINED - RED
Nothing would ever stop M.L.K. from creating peace in America. He knew he had people depending on him and people to guide to courage. “I don’t march because I like it, I march because I must.”
This would be M.L.K. ideal room because the furniture is black and white. Sometimes one piece of furniture would be both black and white. This represents black and white people working together. Also black and white people would socialize here. I think this would be M.L.K. ’s dream room because it showed his number one dream, to have peace within the races.
The Living Peace Award Martin Luther King didn ’t only have power and courage but he could create peace. I think M.L.K. should of got the living peace award because he created peace and showed peace but not only that, he had peace. The peace M.L.K. created is still in America today.
