Martin Luther King Jr.
 
Martin Luther King was a well-known leader of non-violent and successful movement for equalization of colored people with the white people. Like Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela he fought against global segregation. He reached the introduction of the civil rights and created a foundation against the racism. But however he could not eliminate the racism in the USA and change the bad living conditions of the blacks.
The situation of the blacks at the beginning of the 20th century:
The blacks
-had no voting rights
-could not live everywhere, only in certain districts
-were not allowed to use the same public toilets like the white people, they were separated
-could not eat at the same counter in a restaurant
-were not allowed to marry a white person (legal prohibition)
-had separate schools than the white people
1929
Michael King, later Martin Luther King Jr. was born on January the 15th in Atlanta (Georgia). His mother was Alberta King (1904 - 1974), a teacher and his father Michael King Sen. (1899 - 1984) was a reverend of a Baptist Church. He also had two sisters. Because Michael King Sen. admired Martin Luther he renamed himself and his son in Martin Luther King Sen. and Martin Luther King Jr..
Education of M. L. King:
When King Jr. was 17 years old he became a preacher in the church of his father in Atlanta, Georgia. At the same time he visited the Morehouse College there, the only College for blacks in the South. For studying theology he went to the Crozer Theological Seminary in Chester (Pennsylvania). He worried not to fulfil the standards of the white people, that’s why he learned intensively and became the best of his grade. Martin read a lot about Mahatma Gandhi, whose non-violent behaviour impressed and coined him for life. In 1951 he graduated with Bachelor of Divinity. Later he wrote the doctoral thesis on the Harvard University in Boston (Massachusetts). After his studies on the New England College he became a doctor of theology.
1953
On June the 18th King married Coretta Scott in Marion (Alabama). They got four children.
1954
In September King moved to Montgomery (Alabama), for preaching in the Dexter Avenue Baptist church, where he got a community. Already in his childhood King had to suffer as well as all black people under the racism. That was the reason why King created a committee for political and social problems in his church .He advertised for the entry in organizations like the Montgomery Improvement Association as well. It was an association for civil rights and against segregation.
1956
Desegregation in buses
A black woman was founded guilty, because she refused to leave her seat for a white person. It followed the founding of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. It was a movement for the non-violent resistance against discrimination and racism. King was appointed as its chairmen one month later. This organization requested for the boycott of the public means of transport. The blacks locked the streets and demonstrated. The will was interspersed by passive resistance. The boycott lasted about one year and the bus company lost two third of their turnover. King participated in demonstrations and protest actions. Finally the US Supreme Court explained the segregation for unconstitutional and ruled the desegregation.
1960
The first success gave King a sense of achievement, so he left Montgomery for concentrating on the penetration of the interests of blacks.
1962
King met with president John F. Kennedy to receive support for the civil rights of blacks. The president made a legislative proposal. Kennedy always sympathised the intentions of King.
1963
At the beginning of the sixties there were a lot of demonstrations for the civil rights in towns like New York, Rochester, Philadelphia and Birmingham. Because the government was against the movement, the police did anything to prevent it, even to avoid violence.
Demonstration in Birmingham
In May in Birmingham (Alabama) was one of the hardest encounter between demonstrators and police. The demonstration was prevented by police dogs and water-cannons. But the non-violent method of Martin Luther King proved to be effective.
The actions of King caused a flurry of excitement. More and more black citizens followed King. Numerous donations were carried out for further actions. The highest donated sum amounted to 10,000 dollar.
March on Washington
On August the 28th there was the biggest demonstration for civil rights. About 250,000 civil rights activists participate in the famous “March on Washington”. At the Lincoln Memorial King held the famous “I Have A Dream”-speech. In it he wished equal civil rights for everybody and a peaceful life for white and black people together.
Martin Luther King was marked as the person of the year 1963.
1964
Declaration of the Civil Right Act
In June the American senate and the following p...
