Martin Luther King Jr.
Since the existence of the human race, laws of segregation and slavery has been rampant. For this purpose, many men have tried to step up and devote their lives, trying to stop this unjust approach, out of which only few them were able to succeed. Amongst these men remembered for their bravery, comes the name of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who ...view middle of the document...
After finding success in his Southern struggle against racism, Martin Luther King, Jr. found himself at a loss for tactics, faced with a population of blacks to which he could neither relate nor muster support. These vast differences led to King's severe difficulty in dealing with the racism of the North, indirectly contributing to his subsequent downfall.
Each year, beginning in kindergarten, we are taught about racism on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. When asked about racism, any young person living in a northern US state would not hesitate to attack the southern states. After all, we "northerners" are taught that the north, unlike the south, has been fighting for civil rights since the civil war. A northerner would surely claim that racism has always been the strongest in the south. It does seem quite sensible, since all of the well-known, major civil-rights events, such as the Montgomery bus boycott, the Albany Movement, the victory in Birmingham, the letter from Birmingham jail, and the Washington March, occurred in the south. However, when examined more closely and in-depth, it is clear that southern racism wasn't Martin Luther King, Jr's only problem. In fact, northern racism was an even bigger problem, routed so deeply into the northern way of living that it was recognized alike by whites as well as the blacks.
Starting with the Montgomery bus boycott, blacks in the south began to revolt. Dr. King not only did he make this better but he also influenced people to speak up for themselves no matter what sex, race, or religion there is no wrong in saying what you think is right. Hatred amongst other people just because they look different or they act different is not morally correct people should live with accept and maybe even embrace the different cultures. King was a man of his word. Even though bombs were being thrown inside his Georgia home twice in 1956, he never backed out. The White people were angry with his approach of supporting African Americans. Fortunately, not any of them blew up. In 1956 King was arrested on charges of controlling operational buses illegally without a cause. After all he went through; I would have to respect him greatly for what he did because this didn't stop him from reaching his goal. In the year 1958, he published a book called "Stride toward Freedom: The Montgomery Story" which told many of such goals he was striving or reaching for. Later in 1960, King moved to Atlanta and became a co-pastor and soon led a march towards freedom in Albany (King& Harding, 150-151).
Martin Luther King Jr. made his famous speech inspiring millions, "I Have a Dream". Martin Luther King Jr. stood against the laws of segregation in the buses. This all began when an older women, named Rosa Parks, who was famous for not giving up her seat for a "white" person and was arrested. King was a powerful speaker and with this led his people to stand up for what's right....
