During his journey Malcolm X even “grew the Islamic population in America from 4,000 to 40,000 members by 1960” (www.biography.com), proving his dedication to the Muslim faith. Throughout his speeches, he spoke about the importance of violence and how it was often necessary to endure such harm, once stating, “Power real power, comes from our conviction which produces action, uncompromising action” (www.biography.com). Although these two men differed in their thought on violence, they often agreed on how important their fights were. Without Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X, Civil Rights would have been nonexistent,
Essay #2: Argumentative Analysis Martin Luther King Jr. introduced a very controversial argument about why he believed that “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”(264). In “Letter from a Birmingham Jail,” King stated that justice is never given by the oppressor and the reason why his protests were very relevant and wise was because the issues needed to be addressed right then and not later. Moving along throughout his entire letter his primary thesis seemed to be that if the people wanted to be free from racial injustice they needed to participate in nonviolent protests.

Since his audience is all of his followers in his campaigns, he is able to do this due to the fact that they are not official characters he is speaking to. An example from this speech is his use of his children, when he states that he wants his children to “not be judged by the color of their skin…” (paragraph 20). Bringing children into a speech is an emotional thing to do, as people who have children themselves are typically very fond of them, and only want the best for
First going along with what I said about there being “peaceful rallies” even though some people may be at these rallies to make a difference to support their opinion, not everyone can respect that. Rallies may start off peaceful but others who may agree with those protesting don’t always do it peacefully this causes riots and looting, which is the farthest thing from peaceful. There is a fine line from marching down the streets peacefully and making your opinion know like Martin Luther King Jr did in 1965, in Alabama to help fight for the right of African-Americans to vote. Then someone saying it’s okay to loot and destroy cars and stores because they are expressing their opinion.
Many people joined him on the march for salt. He didn't make a riot or disturbed the government. Gandhi only led the march that would change the government's mind bout salt removal.

He lived his life in truth, and spoke to everyone with truth and wisdom, he highlighted self knowledge in everything he did. Without Gandhi India wouldn’t have it’s independence. Gandhi and Malcolm X were both assassinated, if either had lived a full life they would have many more accomplishments. Their approaches are different but they had both fought for equal rights, one for African Americans, and the other for the world. They knew how to address a crowd and get the results they wanted even without being aware of how they affected the public.
Equal rights protester Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “now is the time to make real the promise of democracy, and transform our pending national elegy into a creative psalm of brotherhood.” In 1963, King was arrested for protesting in Birmingham and was put in jail. During that period, he had a lot of spare time and wrote a long and powerful letter full of stylistic elements to church leaders in Birmingham who had criticized him for leading a protest. They made public statements opposing King and his methods for achieving change, but King believed that they misjudged his cause and ways of doing. Martin Luther King, Jr. uses many stylistic elements including convincing examples and keen figurative language to influence his reader to agree with his point in "Letter from Birmingham Jail."

Our country is supposed to be a welcoming place and to stand for equality for all, but denying the right of people trying to live a better life undermines America as a
In his letter. Banneker gives examples of how Jefferson, a man “based on freedom” is hypocritical. Although Banneker himself is not a slave, he fights for “his brothers”. “This, sir, was a time when you clearly saw the injustice of a state of slavery, and in which you had a just apprehension of its horrors. It was then, when your abhorrence was so excited, that you publicly held forth this true and most valuable doctrine: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, and that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
He develops his argument very good because he manages to connect with the audience. He shows a lot of emotion and evidence when he says a "white person killed Martin Luther king." He tells everyone that we should work together and that they should be fighting against each others side because that is what Martin was fighting for that they should stop being racist and stop treating dark skin people like they do not belong there. He also says that Martin "dedicated his life to love and justice between fellow human beings. In paragraph 2 he says "I have some very sad news" and it shows his emotion toward the assassination not only because he was fighting for something good but also because that was his brother.
