Martin Luther King Jr. And Gandhi
There are many people who believe in a philosophy of nonviolence, while others not so much. Two
people who have transposed the civil movement of the world dramatically through the philosophy of
nonviolence are Martin Luther King Jr. and Mohandas K. Gandhi. While there are many pros to
nonviolence, there are just as many cons. Somehow these two people managed to impact millions of
people's lives and still continue to do so today. Through all of the negativity and discrimination
these two people became leaders in our society's eyes and still remain as role models in our society
now. There are always pros and cons to being a leader to millions, but Martin Luther King Jr. and
Gandhi's "non–traditional" non–violence philosophy triumphed over it all for the greater good of the
people. "What is the philosophy of nonviolence?" According to Nonviolence on the Peace Pledge
Union Website: Nonviolence means abstaining from the use of physical force to achieve an aim. It is
a philosophy, a principle, and a practice. As an ethical philosophy, it upholds the view that moral
behaviour excludes the use of violence; as a political philosophy it maintains that violence is self–
perpetuating and can never provide a means to a securely peaceful end. As a principle, it supports
the pacifist position that war and killing are never justifiable. As a practice it has been used by
pacifists and non–pacifists alike to achieve social change and express resistance to oppression.

Martin Luther King Jr Essay
Why was Martin Luther King Jr. such an inspiration to African Americans in America? Martin
Luther King Jr. was an American minister, Civil Rights leader, and activist who had a strong belief
in nonviolent protests (history.com; Martin Luther King Jr.). He was the leader behind the
Montgomery Bus Boycott and the March on Washington which were eventually effective and a law
was passed to end racial discrimination (history.com; Martin Luther King Jr.). On December 1,
1955, Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her seat to a white passenger on the bus. This
caused activists to organize a bus boycott that would last 381 days, and they chose Martin Luther
King to be their leader. By November of 1956, the supreme court passed a law ... Show more

On August of 1968, the voting rights act was passed by congress, which allowed all African
Americans the right to vote as stated on the 15th amendment. On april 4 1968, Martin Luther King
Jr. was assassinated but is still remembered and honored for all his achievements during the civil
rights movement. The assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. was an act done by the face of racism
and hate. In the spring of 1968, Martin luther King Jr. along with other SCLC members were called
to Memphis, Tennessee to support a sanitation workers strike. They were going to protest unfair
wages and unsafe working conditions. On April 3, King gave his last speech at the Mason Temple
Church in Memphis (history.com; Martin Luther King Jr. Assassination). "I've seen the promised
land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to
the promised land. And I'm happy tonight. I'm not worried about anything. I'm not fearing any man.
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord." were some of the words stated by Martin
Luther King Jr. during his last speech (history.com; Martin Luther King Jr. Assassination). The
following day Martin Luther King was standing on the second floor balcony of the Lorraine Motel
when a bullet shot him in the neck around 6 p.m. He was rushed to the hospital where he died an
hour later at the age of 39 on April 4, 1968 (history.com; Martin Luther King Jr. Assassination).

Martin Luther King Jr. " If you can't fly, then run, if you can't run, then walk, if you can't walk, then
crawl, but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward." (King). Martin Luther King Jr. is a
name many know. He was born on January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia. He grew up in a very
religious family, with his father being a pastor, and all. He was galvanized by his father and became
a Baptist minister and social minister after he attended Boston University at the age of 15. He, later,
married Coretta Scott on June 18, 1953, a woman who mothered his four children, Yolanda King
(1955), Martin Luther King III(1957), Dexter Scott King (1961) , and Bernice King (1963). He was
greatly motivated by many great people such as Gandhi, Lincoln, and many other well–known
males. King played a tremendous role in the civil rights movement. He was a great leader who
inspired many people, during and after his lifetime. A huge role model for many people to this very
day, and generations to come. He was an inspiration and role model because he used nonviolence to
fight for equal rights, he never stopped fighting for what he believed in, and because he was a voice
that convinced people that "all men are created equal." Martin Luther King Jr. used his voice to fight
for equal rights, not violence. Like his incredible accomplishment in the bus boycott, when they
chose King as the protest's leader and official spokesman. First of all, the bus boycott all started
when Rosa Parks was

Martin Luther King Jr.
Throughout history there has always been testimony of the consciousness of injustice, and homage
paid those individuals who are cognizant and inquisitive enough to challenge those injustices. Most
often these injustices survive due to society's unwillingness to go against the grain, the lack of
knowledge, the lack of the pursuit of knowledge, and fear of the repercussions of challenging such
injustices. Frequently, those individuals recognized in history are those who evoked change with a
pure heart, perseverance, determination, passion, and demonstrate selflessness by cultivating entire
societies, at any cost. Specifically, in comparing human rights activist, Martin Luther King Jr. and
Greek Philosopher, Socrates, understanding the overall purpose each of their journey's these men
ultimately shared a common goal. In this proclamation, I will prove that without a doubt, Socrates
would have agreed with Martin Luther King's ideas of civil disobedience.
Socrates was a man in search of wisdom, truths, and justice, who simply refused to accept the
discernable deficiency of evidence which sustained such injustices. Martin Luther King Jr., a man in
pursuit of human rights and equality, refusing to concede to the man–made laws suggesting that one
race was superior to another. These two men, although passionate about completely different causes,
had almost identical beliefs on what justice is and what it means. These heroic men both fought for
importance of justice, fairness, and

Martin Luther King Jr Contribution
A Baptist member, and social activist, by the name of Martin Luther King Jr., played a very
important role in the Civil Rights Movement. He began playing his role in the mid 1950's until he
was later assassinated in 1968. Being inspired by supporters of the nonviolence movement, such as
Mahatma Gandhi, King fought for equality for all African Americans. King not only fought for
equality, but he also fought for the right to vote and for the victims of unfairness all through
peaceful protesting. He had a splendid speaking ability, which allowed him to reveal the demands of
African Americans for social justice. King's fluent appeal won the support of billons of people,
black and white, which made him famous. In 1964 he won the Nobel Peace Prize for leading
nonviolent civil rights affirmation. Regardless of King's stress on nonviolence, he started to become
the target of violence. Back in Montgomery, Alabama, white racists bombed his home, and threw
rocks at him in Chicago. Finally, at the age of 39, violence took his life as an assassin shot and killed
him. ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...

While there are many pros to nonviolence, there are just as many cons. Somehow these two people managed to impact millions of people's lives and still continue to do so today. Through all of the negativity and discrimination these two people became leaders in our society's eyes and still remain as role models in our society now. There are always pros and cons to being a leader to millions, but Martin Luther King Jr. and Gandhi's "non–traditional" non–violence philosophy triumphed over it all for the greater good of the people. "What is the philosophy of nonviolence?" According to Nonviolence on the Peace Pledge Union Website: Nonviolence means abstaining from the use of physical force to achieve an aim. It is a philosophy, a principle, and a practice. As an ethical philosophy, it upholds the view that moral behaviour excludes the use of violence; as a political philosophy it maintains that violence is self– perpetuating and can never provide a means to a securely peaceful end. As a principle, it supports the pacifist position that war and killing are never justifiable. As a practice it has been used by pacifists and non–pacifists alike to achieve social change and express resistance to oppression. (ppu.org.uk) Both Martin ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

Frequently, those individuals recognized in history are those who evoked change with a pure heart, perseverance, determination, passion, and demonstrate selflessness by cultivating entire societies, at any cost.

It campaigns against police brutality, calling for racial justice and pushing for the progress of our civil rights in the 21st century.

In his capacity as a Civil Rights leader, MLK delivered his famous "I have a dream" speech after the march for Civil Rights in Washington, D.C. His speech was delivered on August 28th in front of the Lincoln Memorial. In his speech, MLK made sure to emphasize the hope that many African Americans had in the United States. Furthermore, MLK makes it clear that hope to him is defined as, "Sons of former slaves and sons of former slave owners can sit down at the table of brotherhood... that Mississippi will someday be turned into an oasis of freedom and justice... that [his] children will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." (King, 219) MLK's sense of hope is shared by his need for the humane and equal treatment of African Americans. Moreover, MLK stands and speaks in front of Abraham Lincoln's National Monument, alluding to the historic signing of the Emancipation Proclamation which abolished slavery.

King Jr Metaphors On August 28, 1963, Martin Luther King Jr., a civil rights activist, delivered his renowned speech, "I Have a Dream" on the Lincoln Memorial located in Washington to millions of Americans. King relied on the use of metaphors, imagery, and anaphora to establish pathos; as well as to convey his wish to live in a country where everyone has equal civil and economic rights no matter their skin color. King employs many metaphors throughout his speech to disclose emotions that can only be represented by comparing two things. The most notable example is in the beginning of his speech where he compares the lack of justice to a "check with insufficient funds."
