People how made a difference:Martin Luther King

Presentation by Alessandro Caputo


The law at the time said African Americans were 'separate but equal' so they had to live separate lives from white Americans. In 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama, Rosa Parks, an African American woman, was on a bus. When she refused to give her seat to a white man, the bus driver called the police. The police arrested her and the Montgomery Bus Boycott began. This was the beginning of the Civil Rights Movement in the US.


martin luther king was an african-american man who believed in peace and equality between black and white men, for this reason he received a lot of awards, but not everyone liked it and so he was assassinated, but still this did not stop the protests against racists

who was martin luther king

Martin Luther King believed in non-violent protest and he organised many campaigns against racial discrimination. The police frequently arrested him and sent him to prison, but he continued to protest.In 1963, there was an important civil rights protest in Washington. Martin Luther King spoke to the people about his dream for the future: freedom and equality for all Americans. He began with the words: 'I have a dream'. His speech is famous all over the world. In 1964, he won the Nobel Prize for Peace and in 1965, the American government finally made it possible for all African Americans to vote. Martin Luther King was assassinated in Memphis, in April 1968, but in July 1968, the American Government passed the Civil Rights Act and finally African Americans had the same rights as white Americans.

what did he do?

I chose this person because is very difficult take responsibility and did everything for everyone rights, bat Martin Luther King did it, not for him bat for a nation whitout violence or hate. So I think he was a really kind and intelligent man.

My personal opinion
