Martin Luther King Jr. was a great man of 1960’s history. Part of the civil rights movement, the minister was known for his elegant and emotionally moving sermons and speeches. Most widely known was his “I have a dream” speech on August 28 1963. At the massive March on Washington, more than 200,000 Americans of all colors rallied at the Washington Monument for Jobs and Freedom. The goal was equal rights for ALL men.

The March on Washington was a peaceful demonstration for racial equality. But it would not have happened without the beatings, arrests and violent struggle for civil rights that had already engulfed the Deep South.


Celebrating the best ideas in business

The Modes of Discourse—Exposition, Description, Narration, Argumentation (EDNA)—are common paper assignments you may encounter in your writing classes. Although these genres have been criticized by some composition scholars, the Purdue OWL recognizes the wide spread use of these approaches and students’ need to understand and produce them.

Martin Luther King Jr. day means to me that I have the power to make a difference. It means that we must continue to teach the future generations to love unconditionally and blindly to the color of ones skin or national heritages, so that prejudices may one day be completely destroyed and forgotten. It means that no matter whether we are Jews, Christians, White or Black we are all created equal by God. No matter what we look like or the faith we believe in, we are equal in Gods eyes. All of the messages and teachings of Martin Luther king Jr. can be applied to people today. Martin Luther King Jr. taught us about equality towards other people and thereof, living as brothers and sisters in a community of mutual love and respect. Martin Luther King Jr. day means that blacks must desire a piece of the economic pie. I have learned that situations can be changed through nonviolence. Dr. King taught us that unfair conditions and the plight of blacks can be changed through peaceable methods such as: marches, demonstrations, and boycotts. It means that I have the power to make a difference. It means that now, as a female African-American, I can live the life that my grandparents and their parents could not have. I have a chance to survive in a world that so many years ago was unfair to African Americans. In today’s world, Martin Luther King Jrs’ message still applies, like in the 2008 Presidential Election. History was made and elected its first African American President.
