Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929-April 4, 1968) was an African-American minister, speaker, and civil rights leader, who helped to end legal segregation in the US during the early 1960s. He was born Michael King, Jr., but later had his name changed to Martin. He attended segregated publi…c schools in Georgia and received a BA degree in 1948 from Morehouse College, a distinguished Negro institution of Atlanta. After three years of theological study at Crozer Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania (where he was elected president of a predominantly white senior class) he was awarded his BD in 1951. With a fellowship won at Crozer, he enrolled in graduate studies at Boston University, completing his residence for the doctorate in 1953 and receiving the degree in 1955. In Boston, he met and married Coretta Scott, a young woman of uncommon intellectual and artistic attainments. Two sons and two daughters were born into the family. In 1954, Martin Luther King became pastor of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama. He was a strong worker for civil rights for members of his race, and was, by this time, a member of the executive committee of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. He was ready early in December, 1955, to accept the leadership of the first great Negro nonviolent demonstration of contemporary times in the United States - the bus boycott, which lasted 382 days. On December 21, 1956, after the Supreme Court of the United States had declared unconstitutional the laws requiring segregation on buses, Negroes and whites rode the buses as equals. During these days of boycott, King was arrested, his home was bombed, he was subjected to personal abuse, but at the same time he emerged as a Negro leader of the first rank. In 1957 he was elected president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, an organization formed for the civil rights movement. The ideals for this organization he took from Christianity; its operational techniques from Gandhi. Between 1957 and 1968, King traveled over six million miles and spoke over twenty-five hundred times, appearing wherever there was injustice, protest, and action; and meanwhile he wrote five books as well as numerous articles. In these years, he led a massive protest in Birmingham, Alabama, that caught the attention of the entire world, providing what he called a coalition of conscience; he planned the drives in Alabama for the registration of Negroes as voters; he directed the peaceful march on Washington, D.C., of 250,000 people to whom he delivered his address, "l Have a Dream". He conferred with President John F. Kennedy and campaigned for President Lyndon B. Johnson; he was arrested more than twenty times and assaulted at least four times; he was awarded five honorary degrees; was named Man of the Year by Time magazine in 1963; and became not only the symbolic leader of American blacks but also a world figure. At the age of thirty-five, Martin Luther King, Jr., was the youngest man to have received the Nobel Peace Prize. When notified of his selection, he announced that he would turn over the prize money to the civil rights movement. On the evening of April 4, 1968, while standing on the balcony of his motel room in Memphis, Tennessee, where he was to lead a protest march in sympathy with striking garbage workers of that city, he was shot and killed. His boyhood home in Atlanta is now a US National Historic Site. In honor of his contribution to the country, his birth is commemorated on the third Monday in January as a National Holiday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day. martin was a man who fough fo eual rights he was a good man and gandhiim pround of them ( Full Answer )

There is absolutely no family relationship - only their names are quite similar at first glance! The similarity is explained by the fact that Martin Luther King and also his son, Doctor Martin Luther King, Junior, were both named after Martin Luther, the 16th century Protestant theologian. Mar…tin Luther King Jr's father's real name was actually Michael King. Martin Luther King, Jr. was the son of a Black preacher known at the time only as "Daddy King." In 1935, "Daddy King" was inspired to name himself after the Protestant reformer Martin Luther. He announced to his congregation that in future they were to refer to him as "Martin Luther King" and to his son as "Martin Luther King, Jr." Michael King remained Martin Luther King's real name right up to the time he died because the name change was never made legal.

Martin Luther King Jr did what he did because he felt it was lowtime that African Americans especially stood up to be counted as ascitizens of the USA and that they should not be treated equally andfairly in everyday life and business. He wanted to do it in a violent manner, so he spread the wordsta…ting that African-Americans should not boycott the buses to haltthe fair laws.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a black person who lived in Alabama and campaigned peacefully for equal rights for black people.
Dr. King was a very important leader in the civil rights movement. A dynamic orator, he made a number of memorable speeches, including the one known as "I have a dream"-- this speech is considered by many scholars to be an excellent example of effective public speaking. A preacher as well as a civil… rights leader, he was able to mobilize and unify black people (and some white supporters too) to march and peacefully protest until southern blacks finally achieved their rights. As a historical figure, Martin Luther King was able to become the kind of leader necessary to help the civil rights movement advance. And while he had some personal flaws, there is no question that his leadership spearheaded the civil rights movement during the 1950s and 1960s. ( Full Answer )

Martin Luther King was not assassinated. Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated in 1968. The reason for it, and whether it was the work of one man or a conspiracy, was never clearly determined, so the reason why becomes, at best, an educated guess. Some believe it was because the white peop…le thought he was a threat. They thought black shouldn't have the same rights. They didn't want black to have the same rights so they killed him because he was going to be successful and make blacks have the same rights as white. Others think it might have been related to his opposition to the war in Vietnam. He was assassinated because some whites were against what he believed so they wanted to get rid of him by assasinating him! (for short) a racist white man shot him cause Martin Luther King Jr. is black... ( Full Answer )

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. fought for equal rights for all people of every backround. The reason he is so unique is because he was non-violent in his goals. He earned the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, and was assassinated in 1968.
His real name is Michael King Jr. But he got Martin Luther King Jr because he was named AFTER his father.
Martin Luther King Jr was not named after Martin Luther. Martin Luther King Jr was named after his father, Martin Luther King. Martin Luther King was named after Martin Luther.
How did he die ? If that's what your question is suppose to be . Well he died because someone shot him, no one knows who though .
as many history making figures he was murdered before he seen the end of segregation.
He wanted to see African-Americans and Anglo-Americans live together peacefully. Back then racism was very intense(eg. black people had to sit in a different area on the bus than the white) which most likely motivated him even more to do what he did.
