Franklin through his education and assistance to the civil rights movement earned the respect of many influential people. His determination and willingness to continual effort to modify laws and the perception of our culture, he was able to help reform society’s views and behaviors toward African Americans. At first I was skeptical of the claim from the reading that Dr. Franklin’s experience on the train at the age of seven could influence a person to contribute such changes to our nation’s history. After researching Dr. Franklin, I found the many contributions provided by him to the Civil Rights Movement have reshaped America’s racial identity.

Being birthed to a black pastor and a former school teacher, King was fortunate to go to a segregated public school. King attended Morehouse College, where he studied law and medicine. He later decided to answer the call to ministry like his father and enrolled in a graduate program at Boston University.

Two Civil Rights leaders who had the same dream, and a goal they wanted to achieve making equality possible in America. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X were both strong leaders, but had different views, religious outlooks, background, and were both assassinated in their prime. Martin Luther King Jr. grew up in Atlanta Georgia raised by his reverend mother Alberta Williams King, and his reverend father Martin Luther King Sr. The King family lived in a middle-class black section of the largest city in the south of Atlanta Georgia surrounded by lawyers, doctors, teachers, and black business owners. Martin Luther King Jr. was well educated he graduated Booker T. Washington high school at the age of 15 years old and attended college at Morehouse college.
At twenty-five years of age, Martin Luther King became a pastor for the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, located in Montgomery Alabama (Fuller, 314). His faith in God and Jesus only grew stronger as he witnessed the injustices shown towards African Americans. He often quoted passages from the Bible in his sermons and even in his famous Letter from Birmingham Jail. In this letter, he explains that he is a "love extremist" (King, 297). He viewed religion as a method of bringing out the best in people.
Martin Luther King Jr. was a very historical character. “We cannot walk alone.” (www.goodreads.com) Martin Luther King Jr. was born January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia. King was an inspiration even when he was younger to help his community. For example, he was a minister and pastor in many churches because of his belief in God, he fought against racial prejudice, and became a sharecropper family in a poor farming community. King quoted “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?” (http://parade.com/) As inspiration in our life we can learn how to help one another instead of learning based on race.
