Martin Luther King Jr.

The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was an eloquent black minister who
dedicated his life to the struggle for racial equality in America. Inspired
by the conviction that nonviolence and peaceful protest could abolish
social injustice, he fought hard to gain the freedoms every living person is
entitled to. His peaceful resistance and his ability to arouse ?lon in
whites as well as blacks made him one of the most outstanding black
leaders in the world. Martin Luther King was one of the greatest leaders in
this nations history.

From the beginning, people knew King was special. King was so
gifted that he was accepted into Morehouse College at the age of 15,
without even finishing high school. There he underwent a special program
for gifted students, and graduated with a B.A. in sociology (1948). King,
now the age of a high school senior, attended Crozer Theological Seminary
in Chester, Pennsylvania. He was the valedictorian of his class and student
body president. King also won a graduate fellowship. Cozer is where King
was first introduced to Mahatma GandhiOs philosophy of nonviolence and
civil disobedience. King was fascinated by this philosophy. Mahatma
GandhiOs life and teachings ultimately influenced KingOs destiny as a
leader of passive resistance. This philosophy played an important role
throughout his entire life. King graduated with the
