PHL/458
Martin Luther King Jr.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., should be included on any list of influential thinkers because he was able to visualize a version of America which did not exist at the time and then create a plan to organize the civil rights movement toward the goal of reaching his vision. According to “Nobel Prize” (2014), the ideals for this organization he took from Christianity; its operational techniques from Gandhi. In the eleven-year period between 1957 and 1968, King traveled over six million miles and spoke over twenty-five hundred times. Martin Luther King’s contribution to society was the message of equality without violence. He orchestrated peaceful marches and sit ins for protestors. Not only did he orchestrate but he participated, as well as going to jail for standing up for equal and civil rights. Dr. King organized the Montgomery Bus Boycott, when Rosa Parks was jailed for sitting in the white section of the bus. He also organized the March on Selma to support sanitation workers that were on strike for unfair treatment. After Dr. King’s epic fight for equality that led to the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, he continued to strive for greater efforts in ensuring a brighter future for all without separation of race, creed, or sex. In 1965, King protested in Selma, Alabama until the Voting Rights Act was passed allowing African American’s to vote in the South (U.S. History, 2014). Dr. King’s thinking compares to Banksy, because Banksy is visualizing a world that doesn’t exist and expressing it in his art. Dr. King was able to have this visualizing skill, but also able to create a plan for changing the future. He also compares in relation to Dr. Cornel West. They both had things in common in their creative process and in the type of treatment they wanted for African Americans. Both felt that people need to be intelligent in order to be able to live in such a racist society. Due to his relentless willpower, Dr. King strived through a lifetime of work to bring equality to everyone. Today, as we look around in the world that he helped create, we see interracial relationships, same sex marriages, African American CEO’s, a Hispanic Justice of the Courts, and not to mention, the first African American President of the United States of America.
