What details from the speech and letter show that Gandhi and king held this same idea?

User Avatar
Gandhi's philosophy greatly influenced Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the African-American community in general. In 1959, Dr. King preached about the significance of Gandhi's 1928 salt march and his quest to end discrimination for India's "untouchables." Dr. King felt that Gandhi's nonviolent approach would lead to the end of racial discrimination in America.

What was Martin Luther King Jr's given name at birth?

User Avatar
Martin was born as Michael King. His father, Martin Luther King, Sr., was also born with the name Michael but changed it to Martin when he was 22. He intended his son to also be Martin but claims that the birth certificate stated the wrong name. MLK Jr. never legally changed his name so he died as Michael King.
