King’s entire life was an example of power that nonviolences brings...” (Chavez 1) His nonviolent approach to difficulties still have a huge aftermath in our world and change it for the better. The author really emphasizes the trueness of King’s character and his example to our struggling lives to make a better world. Additionally, Chavez uses emotion to change the readers view to the capability nonviolence has. For example, “We are convinced that when people are faced with a direct
Even when Gandhi was not behind bars they pushed on. “..I shall proceed with such co-workers of the Ashram [Community] as I can take, to disregard the provisions of the Salt Laws.” (Document A, Gandhi). Gandhi knew he had people to back him and fight, (nonviolently speaking), with him. Even before the Salt March truly began people lined up behind Gandhi and joined him in his march for freedom. The loyalty of these people is what really kept the movement alive.
Nonviolent resistance has produced an incredible impact throughout history, most notably during the Civil Rights movement.

Chavez utilizes allusions and strong diction to develop his argument supporting nonviolent resistance. Chavez uses allusions to add ethos to his argument endorsing nonviolent resistance.

It rectified this by establishing Freedom schools. “They assigned eight hundred volunteers from around the nation, mainly white college students to [...] improve education for rural black youngsters [...].” Ingeniously, volunteers were trained to protect themselves if they had problems while doing their job. “COFO ran workshops [...] and taught the volunteers [...].” The schools, in a way, showed, how racial inequality still existed, considering that “desegregation is difficult.” They taught from normal academic courses to those within African American history.
In his speeches, King is very wise because he knew the best way to have his message remembered and push forward the civil rights movement was to get an emotional response. An emotional connection to a movement would result in more support and effort for the movement. As a result, in his speech “The Eulogy for the Martyred Children”, King took the social group of the 4 young girls who were murdered in the Birmingham church bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in 1963, and portrayed them as perfect and very young people so he could use them as a catalyst to expand the civil rights movement. A few weeks before King gave his eulogy, he gave his iconic “I have a Dream” speech. This was supposed to rally activists to
