Has Martin Luther king Jr.’s Dream Come True?
Martin Luther King was an important figure in the Civil Rights Movement. Martin Luther Jr. thought that African Americans and other disadvantaged Americans should be compensated for what happened in the past. King’s speeches, marches and protests moved the nation and inspired people who were treated unfairly.
Martin Luther King, Jr. was born on January 15, 1929 in Atlanta Georgia. His dad was Reverend Martin Luther King, Sr., his mom was Alberta Williams King, his brother was Reverend Alfred Daniel Williams King, and his sister was Christine King Farris. His father and him changed their names from Michael to Martin in honor of a German protestant. His father was a pastor at the Ebenezer Baptist Church and Martin Jr. sometimes served as co-pastor. His grandfather started the family’s long line of pastors.
When King was young he attended public schools in Georgia. He skipped the 9th and 12th grades and graduated high school when he was fifteen. After high school he went to Morehouse College. Then he went to Crozer and was awarded his B.D. in 1951. He then did graduate studies at Boston University, he received the degree in 1955. In Boston he met Coretta Scott and married her. They had two daughters, Yolanda and Bernice, and two sons, Dexter and Martin III.
In 1954, Martin Luther King became pastor of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church. King was always a strong civil rights advocate. He was a member of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. King was a very important person in the Civil Rights Movement. He accepted the leadership of the first great ***** nonviolent demonstration in the U.S., the bus boycott described by Gunnar Jahn. The protest lasted 382 days but worked and white and colored people from then on rode equally.
In 1957, because of the expanding Civil Rights Movement, King was elected president of the Sothern Christian Leadership Conference, an organization made to provide leadership for the movement. This gave King a base to pursue more civil right activities throughout the United States. The thoughts of this organization are based on Christianity and techniques from Gandhi. His way of nonviolent resistance got him arrested many times in the 50s and 60s.
In the eleven year period King was president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference he traveled over six million miles and spoke over twenty five hundred times. He went where there was injustice, protest or action. He wrote five books as well as many articles. Most of his books were about American race relation and collections of his sermons and lectures. King was the first African American to be named Time Magazines Man of the year. King was also the youngest person to get a Nobel Peace Prize
Two of King’s most famous protests were in Birmingham, Alabama and Washington, D.C. He led a protest in Birmingham Alabama and was arrested. The attention from the world inspired his “Letter from Birmingham Jail.” His most famous protest was a peaceful march of 250,000 people on Washington D.C. He delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” address when he led this protest. King also talked with John F. Kennedy and campaigned with Lyndon B. Johnson.
Martin Luther King Jr. was shot April 4th, 1968 by James Earl Ray. He was standing on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel on in Memphis, Tennessee. Ray was arrested and then sentenced to 99 years in the Tennessee Penitentiary. King had been in Memphis to help lead a protest for sanitation workers against low wages and bad conditions.
Martin Luther King Jr. gave African American and poor people a sense of worth and dignity. His nonviolent ways shocked the country and made people rethink their priorities. His wisdom, words, actions, commitment and dreams for the nation mixed with the American experience. To many millions of African American, Martin Luther King Jr. would help them bring racial equality. He was their voice and their cry for human dignity.
Your question, which I assume you were asked to address, was -
'Has Martin Luther king Jr.’s Dream Come True?'
You haven't answered that.
You have written his biography, though most of it looks like 'copy and paste'.
You make several references to what he did but without citing the source (that's plagiarism).
'Letter from Birmingham Jail' requires citing as does your mention of 'I Have a Dream', to name but two examples.
You also say that he 'gave African American and poor people a sense of worth and dignity.'
Where is your proof of this, and what do you mean by 'poor' people, if not blacks?
Did he not bring 'racial equality' to all Africans in America, not just those who were Americans?
There are a few spelling errors too but these are minor compared to the fact that you have not made any attempt to answer ... what was your thesis statement and the question it asked?
You cannot use stars in an essay, 'first great ***** non-violent demonstration', it needs to be written out - if Yahoo has censored the word here, then use the stars for vowels, eg. n*gg*r/ bl*ck, etc.
Sorry, but you wont get marks for this.
I don't believe you came anywhere close to answering the question.
the question you answered was "who is MLK jr and tell us about his life".
I don't see whether or not you think his dream came true. I understand it's a "research paper", but I think it would be better to research recent topics about racism or more importantly benefits that are given to minorities for doing jack $hlt while the white man is painted as the devil. Did MLK je's dream come true? I don't think so. I don't think he was as racist against white people as black people are today and he didn't believe that they deserved so much to be given to them.
Look to people of different colors in other countries and you'll see equality. Look to America to see resentment.
I blame the fact that they make you write these pointless papers and tell you you're wrong for saying that he wasn't a great man or questioning the notion of a black history month or when they require books read from a minority author.
My original point is that you rambled on about everything except what the question was. Much like I just did in answering your question..
-- future note: I don't know if you're submitting this in at turnitin or any other checking for plagiarism sites but you shouldn't post your papers on websites/online cause these sites will catch it and they will think u plagiarized!.
Yea it's good , can you answer my 2nd last question about a lump in my throat when am sad
