Revolutions will always be incurring, we remember the legacies that have formed our way of thought. Martin Luther King Jr. and Susan B. Anthony were mind changing and to this day many look back on them and are impressed with how they influenced the world. Martin Luther King Jr. developed his I have a Dream speech in 1963. A few years before, the Address of Susan B. Anthony was developed in 1872. The two speeches are iconic in developing the new mind of the era, launching the revolution of the mind and heart.
Martin Luther and Martin Luther King Jr. are incredible individuals in the history of the world. And both have contributed a significant amount of knowledge and influence that have changed the lives of many individuals, and even today is being studied and researched. These two great individuals have more in common than many people know, and that resides in their names respectively. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birth name was Michael and not Martin. His father Martin Sr. traveled to Germany and was inspired by Martin Luther and his philosophies and teachings. He was inspired so much that he adopted his moniker of “Martin Luther”.
Many of us today know about Martin Luther King Jr. “I have a Dream” speech; yet, Cesar Chavez gave a similar speech about a different crisis and we fail to recognize it. Martin Luther King, Jr. became a leader in the Civil Rights Movement to end racial segregation and discrimination in America during the 1950's and 1960's. He hoped to obtain equality through nonviolent actions. Cesar Chavez was the leader of the United Farm Workers of America, who saw the hopes for better lives for Mexican, Mexican American, and Hispanic workers in the United States. Although Martin Luther King Jr. and Cesar wrote about two very different topics they tend to have many similarities throughout their speeches discussing what we as a nation need to do to solve each problem.
Martin Luther King Jr. and John Robert Lewis were civil right leaders/civil rights activists around the ‘80’s, which is what everyone knows them as. However, some people didn’t know they both justified breaking the law. Martin Luther King Jr. was not only a powerful preacher, but as well an exceptional reader, as is proved in his 1963 Letter from Birmingham Jail. Of Dr. King’s argument, the central point in his letter states that there is a law higher than mankind’s law. It also states that any human law which is at odds with this much higher law is unjust. Every human being is bound to obey as what Dr. King describes as the “higher law”, which is why our laws must be in harmony with this “higher law”. However for some reason, we as mankind
Each person is entitled to their own opinion; we all have different ideas on the same or different things, but that does not always mean that their opinion is wrong. Each Thoreau and Martin Luther King Jr. had an opinion, and they each made sure that they would share it with the world. They both wrote famous persuasive essays that changed how we viewed the government. They both used literary elements and as well pathos, or emotional appeal to carry out their ideas. Both of them expressed their own idea, their preferences and what they thought was right and expressed what they thought was wrong. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and David Thoreau are completely two different people from completely different eras of time, but they share things in common.
Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr. were both known as civil right leaders in the 1960’s. Both men had a different perspective on civil rights and how civil rights should be won. Both men also had strong beliefs on religious and followed on through that path in different ways. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X had several differences and several comparisons and had a big impact for the people of The United States.
Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks were inspirational leaders that contributed greatly towards the civil rights movement. With racial discrimination surrounding King and Park, growing up as an African American made it hard and colored people were unfairly treated. Both King and Park knew the inequalities and sought education to aid themselves in their unfair life. Despite this, Park and King were brought up responsibly by their parents, King was an active civil rights activist, participating in the ‘Montgomery Bus Boycott’, ‘March on Washington’ and lead the ‘Selma to Montgomery march’. Rosa Parks was an influential figure contributing to the civil rights movement as she was the chosen ‘test case’ the NCAACP were looking for.
“I have a dream” and “The constitution is the guide which I never will abandon.” These quotes are very famous and spoken by two powerful men that has made a big impact on the world. Martin Luther King Jr. was known best for his powerful speech and also known for being a leader. “He was an influential leader of the modern American Civil Rights Movement, an advocate of nonviolence and a Nobel Peace Prize winner.” George Washington was also a great leader and started many new things in his life. “Best known as “Father of our Country” and was unanimously elected the first President of the United States.” Martin Luther King Jr. and George Washington are very well known and still leaving their impact to us.
Disobedience is the failure or refusal to obey rules or someone in authority. Disobedience like obedience becomes a virtue. Disobedience can prove that a person can stand against what they think is wrong and what they believe. In the past, there has been people that fought for what they thought was correct and made a change in the world. Like Irish Oscar Wilde once said, “It is through disobedience that progress has been made…,” I believe only the courageous will stand for themselves and for what they believe. Just like Cesar Chavez and Martin Luther King did.
In the early 1960's African American people had barely any rights at all. For the African Americans to get the rights they designated people known as activists to represent them to the nation and to the government. Two of the greatest activists were Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcom X. They both wanted the same thing, love and equality for all, but they had two extremely separate ways of reaching this goal.
Henry David Thoreau's Civil Disobedience and Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Letter from a Birmingham Jail were written approximately 114 years apart. However, both publications share a common theme. Each of these authors express their opinions on government injustices. The political environments in which each author lived provided their inspiration for their writings. Although many years separate these two works, there are similarities as well as differences between Thoreau's and King's written opinions.
Heroes come in many forms. Some of those forms ware capes and some like to scare little children and ware tights, but some are like Malala Yousafzai who is still fighting for girl’s right to education around the world. Or like Susan B. Anthony who fought for woman’s right to vote.
King Kamehameha and Martin Luther King Jr. [MLK] were very similar and different. King Kamehameha was the first person in Hawaiian history to conquer all the islands. He encouraged trade and also made prices higher on trade items. Kamehameha was also very respectful and prayed to the war god Kukailimoku everyday. MLK was a civil rights leader and fought for African Americans to have freedom. MLK also wanted to have fairness between every skin color. He also had a very famous “I Have A Dream” speech and inspired many people to stand up for what’s right. MLK also led a very famous protest in nineteen-sixty-three that helped stop racial discrimination [March On Washington 2]. This protest was from the Washington Monument to the Lincoln Memorial [March On Washington For Jobs And Freedom]. Kamehameha and MLK were effective leaders because they both were very powerful and they pushed the limits.
Dr. Martin Luther King Junior and Malcolm X were the two particular most prevalent, most influential individuals of the Civil Rights Movement. Their tactics, ideologies, childhoods, and ideas of freedom differed in virtually every aspect. The ways in which these men sought transformation in society are where the majority of their differences existed. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a huge proponent for peaceful demonstrations, silent marches, and nonviolent public sit-ins, where he and his supporters made open, unrestricted declarations for equality and integration. His entire philosophy on optimism and love originated from his Baptist roots and was a direct cause of his peaceful, nonviolent upbringing. In contrast, Malcolm X had a turbulent and traumatic childhood that led to a more forceful, direct form of demonstration that never pushed for peace and love and national social harmony. His religion and main area of support, the Nation of Islam, did not believe a simple sit-in or peaceful protest would create a change in society. Instead, he advocated for Black Nationalism, not for integration. Malcolm X encouraged the black community to become autonomous, to function separately from white society. A number of striking similarities existed between these men, however. Both men were intelligent from a young age, were raised in the same religion, had a staggering awareness of the national racial tensions in America, fought for justice for their people, pushed for social and
Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, Jr. were two prominent Americans to struggle against racism, discrimination and they too had to suffer quite a lot for Black emancipation.

He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and was the youngest to hold it. Assassinated on April 4, 1968, and fought for freedom and human rights. Luther was concern to rejected all violence types.
