Black History

Martin Luther King, Jr.

      A man ,who redefined the word Dream, would cause a revolutionary change. Martin Luther King, Jr., a man of great knowledge. Who is this man? What did he do to help the Civil Rights Movement.
     It would all start when a tired Black woman would not move for a white man. She was jailed for her refusalment. Dr. King leading the Montgomery Improvement Association would organized a boycott of Montgomery buses for more than a year. In a 1956 U.S. Supreme Court ruling, the segregation laws on Alabama's buses were declared unconstitutional.
    Dr. King organized the SCLC or the Southern Christian Leadership Conferences to further advance Black equality. His nonviolent tactics were from the teachings of Ghandi.
   In 1963, King led one of the most demonstrations in history of the U.S. nation. " The March On Washington,"
would include  Dr. King's famous " I Have a Dream" speech.
