Martin Luther King - Life
Martin Luther King was born in Atlanta in 1929. He studied in Philadelphia where he knew Gandhi and his policy of non-violence. In 1954 he was a minister in a small Negro church, in Montgomery. In this country he did the first non violent demonstration against racial discrimination after that a black lady was arrested because she sat in a seat on a bus reserved for white people. In fact in that period, black people had not the same rights of white people.
In 1956, in Alabama, the segregation was declared illegal and for the first time, Martin Luther King won his battle. But he was arrested and imprisoned. On august 28th 1963 Martin Luther King led a peaceful march in Washington because he dreamt to see black and white people together in peace. In fact his famous speech called " I have a dream" (Where he said, I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character). His demonstration weren't violent. He won the Nobel Peace Price in 1964 but he was assassinated in Memphis in 1968.
