Marthin Luther king


Ezequiel Luis Hernández

English Language I



Martin Luther King was born in January 15th in 1929. He was an important American Baptist minister and activist who became one of the most relevant and essential person of the Civil Rights Movement (organisation that wants to end with discrimination). However, he is well known for achieving all his goals without any fighting or any type of violence. He was a pastor with just twenty-five and finished his doctorate in 1955.

When he has finished his studies, he visited India where he met Mahatma Ghandi who later became his principal influence. He achieved many improvements in the Black people lives such as ‘the right to let African-Americans vote’,’School could be desegregated’,’Consider discrimination as a delit’. Thanks to his targets and intentions to change that situation he became the African-Americans hope, to carry on fighting for their rights.

One of the most famous speech was ‘I have a dream’ where he said; ‘I have a dream…. that my four Little children will live in a nation where they will not judged by the color of their skin but the content of the character’ (King,1963,I have a dream p.5).In this quote we could see that he wanted to have a better nation, without any kind of discrimination and give a certain hope for the future generations of Black people.

This amazing speech gathered thousands of people in Washington to hear these outstanding words in which he also stood for the abolishment of Slavery, the exploitation and mistreatment of blacks among others things. In 1964, he won the Nobel Prize for leading non-violent resistance to end with the Racial Discrimination in EEUU.

In my opinion, Martin was the person decided for this description not only because we are stuying him in other subjects but also because he is one of the most striking and influential person in the World History.
