The story of the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. is the story of America's most important civil rights leader. This paper looks at his life and examines how he was responsible for significantly raising the nation's awareness over civil rights issues and for working to have the federal government pass some comprehensive legislation over them. He dedicated his life to the struggle and did not stop until his untimely death on April 4, 1968.
From the Paper:"In 1963 King participated in another mass demonstration, this time in Birmingham, Alabama and this time having to do with the desegregation of department stores and the promotion of nondiscriminatory hiring practices. Many protesters experienced police brutality and King himself was arrested; he wrote "Letter from a Birmingham Jail" in order to bring attention to this experience. Later that same year on August 28 King helped to organize and lead the historic March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. In conjunction with five other civil rights organizations which included the NAACP, Urban League, Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, SNCC, and the Congress of Racial Equity, King's SCLC attempted to bring the plight of African-Americans into the nation's consciousness.
