Martin Luther King Jr. was known for his famous speech about equality, that is because his dream was standing up for civil rights. People who fight for a cause such as Martin Luther King Jr. are called activists. Activists are important people who are determined to fight for their cause to make the world a better and happier place. There are many other important activists, such as Ruby Bridges, and Malala Yousafzai who fought for an important cause. Just like the many important activists, one of the extremely significant activists was Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a black man born on January 15, 1925 in Atlanta, Georgia.
Court Cases Contributing to the Civil Rights Movement America: Land of the free. Or is it? Not that long ago, equal opportunity seemed far away as the moon to many African-American citizens. This is the cornerstone of the Civil Rights Movement, which has been taking on serious publicity in the late 1960 's, but dates as far back as American colonial times. The infamous court cases of Dred Scott v. Sanford, Plessy v. Ferguson, and Brown v. The Board of Education all helped further the cause of the Civil Rights Movement by giving insight into the lives and struggles of African-Americans to the public and promoting racial equality.
“Whenever my environment had failed to support or nourish me, I had clutched at books...” (Wright 282). Agree to disagree, but these words from Black Boy, by Richard Wright published in 1945, perfectly explain why reading and writing were the most influential feature in shaping Wright into the influential person he eventually became. Wright faced many issues growing up as a young African-American in the Deep South. He was able to overcome many of those issues by turning to reading and writing. Wright’s writing helped lay the groundwork for the Civil Rights movement; by using his personal experiences, he was able to produce an impact on future generations by bringing to light the oppression African-Americans faced in America.
For this reason, older African-Americans usually go to the youth at churches and schools to spread the awareness and knowledge about social groups like the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). On the other hand, there were non-violent people like Martin Luther King Jr., and there were more “hands on” people like Malcolm X when it came to the equality of African-Americans. Even though both of these leaders are dead they left a huge impact on the black communities and even made more people come out and support the fight for justice. When I think about the Black Panther Party, I think about the Black Lives Matter movement (BLM) that is going on today. There aren’t police beatings like Rodney King, but there are police killings like Sandra Bland.
