The background of Rev. King as the background of the saying

1929Year Atlanta, Georgia, USAIt was Rev. King who was born as the son of Baptist Rev. Michael Luther King.

It had the same name as his father, but later his father Michael renamed him Martin, and he renamed him as well,

In other words, Rev. King's name is Martin Luther King, Jr.

He was a civil rights leader and chose to follow the same ministerial path as his father after college.

By the way, he is a skipper15He became a college student at the age of.

Let's take a closer look at how he came to fight discrimination.

.. Received his first discrimination in his childhood

One day the mother of a white boy who lived in the house next door declared that she would never play with a black man.

Rev. King, who will fight discrimination,6He experienced the first discrimination in his life at the age of.

.. he suffers from racism

President LincolnByEmancipationWas declared, but discrimination against African Americans was not completely eliminated.

There was even a law prohibiting and restricting the use of public facilities by black people.

・・Montgomery Bus Boycott Case

1954In a year, a black man was arrested without giving up his seat to a white man, and Rev. King plans the Montgomery Bus Boycott campaign.

The court subsequently issued an unconstitutional ruling on the acceptance of racial discrimination, which led to a successful protest.

・ ・ Thorough non-violence

Partly due to his own pastoral background, he remained nonviolent, abandoning resistance.

It is said that this is not just a weak posture, but the aim of showing the lies of the rulers clearly all over the world.

・・I Have a Dream

King and his companions declare Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation in Washington100We planned a big rally to commemorate the year.

AndI Have a DreamHe gave a famous speech including, and was praised for his simple content appealing for the elimination of racial discrimination.

Martin Luther King's Famous Episode

Rev. King, who worked to save African Americans from discrimination, has several famous episodes.

Here are some of the most impressive ones.

・ ・ The line that I have a dream was ad lib

I Have a DreamIn other words, the episode that I have a dream is inevitable when talking about him.

Actually, the manuscript prepared for the speech does not have this line, and it is said that he shouted in ad lib.

・ ・ It was difficult to hear the famous speech.

The audio equipment was destroyed by someone and can be said to be synonymous with him.I Have a DreamIt seems that it was difficult to hear the speech including.

It seems that he wanted Ben to play at his funeral.

The spirit of Rev. King who continues to give love and courage

As the saying goes, Rev. King hated silence and stopping, and he emphasized the attitude of moving forward.

Unfortunately, discrimination still exists after Rev. King's death, and some people are hurt by being mistreated somewhere on this planet.

But without his life-threatening and enthusiastic actions, it is predicted that the planet would be worse off in discrimination than it is now.

In addition, the selfless activities that took the life of Rev. King have continued to give the courage and dreams of living to many people of world freedom beyond the color of their skin.

In order to make his life positive and bright, I recommend that you use the powerful maxim he left as a motto.
