Martin Luther King Jr.

Virginia Bates

Martin Luther King Jr. is one of the best leaders. He made a change without violence in different ways of protesting and never giving up. He was confident he was going to change the lives of African Americans and that drove people to follow him. He wanted his followers to have a non-violent protest, even though a white man hit you doesn’t mean you should hit back because fighting violence with violence is not the answer. Instead, he and his followers refused to obey unjustified laws. They were put into prison, but they would still not surrender. He continued his nonviolent protesting for the African American people. The determination and dream Dr. King had was why his movement was so powerful.
