Whose phylosophy of political change did Martin Luther King Jr follow?
Martin Luther King Jr. both admired and studied the philosophy of non violence as was practiced by Mahatma Gandi. He incorporated the tactics Gandi had used to acquire Indian independence and incorporated it into the American Civil Rights movement.
No. Martin Luther and Martin Luther King Jr are not related. The two men are very similar. Martin Luther King Jr was inspired by Martin Luther. Therefore, he decided to change his name to his role model and hero. Martin Luther rebelled against the Catholic Church in 1517. Martin Luther King Jr rebelled against segregation, freedom of blacks, etc. Hope this helps!
