What motivated him?
  • What motivated him the most was after Rosa Parks

    activist were struck by this event and it
    motivated them to do something.

Accomplishments
  • He was the leader of the first non-violent
    African American movement, in December 1955,
    attempting to overturn Jim Crow laws, which
    relegated African Americans and other minorities
    to the back of buses.
  • He was the author of the famous "Letter from a
    Birmingham Jail", written in 1963, to other
    preachers, to turn their indifference towards the
    civil rights movement and bring about a change of
    heart, so they could support his efforts and the
    efforts of the N.A.A.C.P.
  • He was the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace
    Prize in 1964, when he was 35 years old. He used
    the money from the prize to further civil rights

  • "Discrimination is a hellhound that gnaws at
    Negroes in every waking moment of their lives to
    remind them that the lie of their inferiority is
    accepted as truth in the society dominating
    them."
  • -Martin Luther King Jr.
