This study examines the nature of civil disobedience within the religious anti-racism platform of Civil Rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. This paper compares the work of Martin Luther King to the secular doctrines of civil disobedience in the writings of Henry David Thoreau, a secular society application of non-violence that need not be separated from religion. King was a highly religious man, and he used religion to inspire strength in his community by adhering to Biblical principles.
