Martin Luther King Jr.'s About

[]

Martin Luther King Jr. was an important figure in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. While fighting injustice against African-Americans, he avoided violence as much as possible. His theories were based on Christian teachings, but he looked to Mahatma Gandhi's nonviolent campaign for operational skills. Montgomery Bus Boycott was his first significant effort. It not only resulted in the repeal of racial segregation on Montgomery's public transportation system, but it also elevated Martin Luther King Jr. to a national icon and the civil rights movement's most outspoken speaker. He went on to lead a number of other peaceful campaigns and provide a number of motivational speeches. Later, he broadened the scope of his campaign and began pushing for equal pay for equal work. One of his campaigns was the 'March to Washington for Jobs and Freedom.' He was arrested twenty-nine times in his brief life. He wished that one day, everyone will be assessed on their abilities rather than their skin color. At the age of 39, he was killed by a white fanatic's bullet.
