success. When Rosa Parks was arrested for failing

Non-Violent Civil
Dr. King embraced the non-violent civil
disobedient philosophies which are employed by
Mahatma Gandhi. He organized marches with the
particular intent for empowering the
African-American right to vote, labor,

Most Popular March
His most popular march was in 1963 when he went
to Washington, D.C. and gave his "I Have A
Dream," speech in front of the Lincoln memorial.
The President Lyndon B. Johnson later passed the

In March 1968
In March 1968 while in Memphis, Tennessee for
supporting the African-American sanitary workers
on strike, he was killed as he was standing on
the balcony of his hotel room. Posthumously,
rumors surrounded him that he had plagiarized the
thesis of his doctorate and that he was a
womanizer. But what he accomplished that does not
subtract - Alabama civil rights for all,
particularly for African-Americans. Dr. King left
behind a rich legacy of work and accomplishments
