What’s This? ..Write a Paper About Martin Luther King, Jr.How to Write a Paper About Martin Luther King, Jr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929-April 4, 1968), was one of leaders of the American civil rights movement. A Baptist minister by training, King became a civil rights activist early in his career, leading the Montgomery Bus Boycott and helping to found the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. His efforts led to the 1963 March on Washington, where King delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech, raising public consciousness of the civil rights movement and establishing King as one of the greatest orators in American history. His life and career are often the subject of school papers.Instructions.1Decide upon a topic for the paper. There are many aspects to King’s life that are worth writing about.

do you think this is the america Dr Martin Luther King Jr dreamed of. what do you think he would criticize.
No, but if he could see the shambles America is in because of what he started, I think he would have a different “dream”._____________________This is a WorldNetDaily printer-friendly version of the article which follows.To view this item online, visit http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=46714Friday, October 7, 2005Truth: Solution to black America’s moral povertyPosted: October 7, 20051:00 a.m. EasternBy Rev. Jesse Lee PetersonLast week, I wrote in this space that it was the lack of moral character and dependence on government that cost blacks when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, not President Bush or racism. Since then, I’ve been deluged by e-mails – overwhelmingly positive – repeatedly making the same point: I said what white Americans know to be true, but are afraid to say.As it was put in one e-mail, “I thought along the same lines as your sentiments, but as a white I would never voice such words for fear of being called a racist and worse.” Another wrote: “Even as I sit here writing to you I’m breaking out in a sweat for fear of being called a racist.” Another said: “That was an excellent article, and unfortunately it could only be said by another African-American.”This confirmed what I’ve known for a long time: Everyone knows most of black America is screwed up – immoral, dependent, weak – but so few are able to say so. Unfortunate as that is, it is reassuring that we all know the truth. With this in mind, I would like to make the case that all Americans – black and white – should tell the truth when it comes to race and morality.To do this, I’d like you to consider the recent controversy surrounding Bill Bennett. Last week, a caller to his national radio talk show suggested that abortion could be opposed on the grounds that it has hurt the solvency of Social Security (fewer taxpayers means less Gross National Product, he reasoned). Bennett took issue with this ends-justify-the-means form of argumentation, and challenged it with a hypothetical: (referencing statistics in the book “Freakonomics”):I do know that it’s true that if you wanted to reduce crime, you could, if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down. That would be an impossible, ridiculous, and morally reprehensible thing to do, but your crime rate would go down. So these far-out, these far-reaching, extensive extrapolations are, I think, tricky.Bennett was immediately attacked by Howard Dean, Ted Kennedy, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, the NAACP, the National Association of Black Journalists, and many others. His comments were labeled “racist.”Of course, no one on this list of elite whites and angry liberal blacks could possibly explain how Bennett’s comments were racist. Nor could anyone show that the comments were false. The reason is simple: They weren’t racist. They were true.That is just the point: The truth doesn’t matter to these people. That is why all should tell the truth to black America.Bennett didn’t say anything objectionable, yet he was attacked. He was attacked by people whose only purpose is to destroy, by people who don’t care who they destroy. Whether you tell the truth or stay silent, they will go after you. They need no provocation.Consider this analogy. There is a movie in theaters now called “Grizzly Man.” It’s about a man who spent several summers “making friends” with Alaskan grizzly bears. He gave the grizzlies names, sang to them, told them he loved them. Then the grizzlies ate him.Not surprising, of course. Be as nice as you want; at the end of the day, grizzlies are grizzlies – wild animals that will kill you when it suits them.Evil is the same way. No one needs to provoke Kennedy, Dean, Reid, or the NAACP. They serve the side of destruction. That’s just what they do.No matter what you do, no matter how nice you try to be, no matter how genuinely you try to have a dialogue, no matter how much money you give, evil will never cease to be evil. Liberals, black and white, will attack conservative white Republicans as racists regardless. Ask Bill Bennett.Or ask President Bush. He’s invested more government money in black America than Bill Clinton. He’s put more black Americans in prominent leadership positions than Bill Clinton. He’s been a fine moral example, unlike Bill Clinton. It doesn’t matter. Evil people love Bill Clinton because he is one of them. Those who oppose President Bush hate him because he’s good. They will forever oppose him for this reason. Just recently, Congressman Charles Rangel called President Bush the modern-day “Bull” Connor.Do you think Charles Rangel and those like him will let you off the hook, whether you tell the truth or not? Guess again.When all is said and done, you’re left with two options:1. Tell black America the truth. Accept that it won’t always be met pleasantly, but that you’re standing for what’s right, you are exposing lies, helping truth gain ground, and inspiring others to do the same. Or,2. Stay silent. Let evil do what it wants. It will strike, of course, despite your silence. Only this way it goes unopposed, gains ground, and the good lose heart.Is there really a choice?Editor’s note:BOND, the Brotherhood Organization of A New Destiny and the Heritage Foundation will host “The New Black Vanguard Conference II: Reclaiming Our Destiny” on Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2005, 1-4 p.m. EST, at the Heritage Foundation’s Allison Auditorium (214 Massachusetts Avenue, N.E., Washington, D.C.) to address a variety of issues, including the moral crisis in black America.The Rev.

When you first learned that Rev. Martin Luther King was guilty of plagiarism how did you feel.
In 1988, the Martin Luther King Jr. Papers Project made a discovery that shocked it to its core.The Project, a group of academics and students, had been entrusted by Coretta Scott King with the task of editing King’s papers for publication. As they examined King’s student essays and his dissertation,…
Doesn’t change that his message was a good one to listen to.You know, it’s funny you mention it though, by the same vein Jesus plagiarized a lot, don’t see many people taking issue to that.

Help with writing a letter to Martin Luther King Jr. please.
These are my directions:Read the “Birmingham in 1963” document that is attached. Pretend you are an African-American living in Birmingham in 1963. Write a letter to Dr. King asking for his help with the Birmingham situation. Use examples from the document in your letter to describe what your life is…
you could do a lot worse than reading and then paraphrasing King’s own letter from a Birmingham jail – written that year.full text of that letterherehttp://abacus.bates.edu/admin/offices/dos/mlk/letter.html
what was the name of the letter marther luther king jr wrote in Birmingham jail .
also can you tell me what j.edger hoover of the fbi did to marther you know luther king jr and were did he sent his information ???
“Letter from the Birmingham Jail” is what you are looking for. See alsodocuments from the MLK museum.J. Edgar Hoover “investigated” Dr. King to the point of harassment. The was a threat of exposure of Dr. King’s relationships by Hoover who was essentially a racist (amongst other things). Some of the information has remained sealed but there are books and articles available to document these event. The article I’m citing is from CNN.com/US by Jen Christensen.(CNN) — FBI wiretaps have “given us the most powerful and persuasive source of all for seeing how utterly selfless Martin Luther King was,” as a civil rights leader, according to a leading civil rights scholar.The FBI’s interest in the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. intensified after the March on Washington in 1963….”You see him being intensely self-critical. King really and truly believed that he was there to be of service to others. This was not a man with any egomaniacal joy of being a famous person, or being a leader,” said Pulitzer Prize-winning scholar David Garrow in a recent interview with CNN.Hoping to prove the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was under the influence of Communists, the FBI kept the civil rights leader under constant surveillance.The agency’s hidden tape recorders turned up almost nothing about communism.But they did reveal embarrassing details about King’s sex life — details the FBI was able to use against him.The almost fanatical zeal with which the FBI pursued King is disclosed in tens of thousands of FBI memos from the 1960s.The FBI paper trail spells out in detail the government agency’s concerted efforts to derail King’s efforts on behalf of the civil rights movement.The FBI’s interest in King intensified after the March on Washington in August 1963, when King delivered his “I have a dream speech,” which many historians consider the most important speech of the 20th century. After the speech, an FBI memo called King the “most dangerous and effective ***** leader in the country.”The bureau convened a meeting of department heads to “explore how best to carry on our investigation [of King] to produce the desired results without embarrassment to the Bureau,” which included “a complete analysis of the avenues of approach aimed at neutralizing King as an effective ***** leader.”The FBI began secretly tracking King’s flights and watching his associates. In July 1963, a month before the March on Washington, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover filed a request with Attorney General Robert Kennedy to tap King’s and his associates’ phones and to bug their homes and offices.In September, Kennedy consented to the technical surveillance. Kennedy gave the FBI permission to break into King’s office and home to install the bugs, as long as agents recognized the “delicacy of this particular matter” and didn’t get caught installing them. Kennedy added a proviso — he wanted to be personally informed of any pertinent information.While King did have associates who had been members of the Communist Party, by all accounts they severed those ties when they started working in the civil rights movement. What’s more, the FBI bugs never picked up evidence that King himself was a Communist, or was interested in toeing the party line.But the long list of bugs in his hotel rooms picked up just enough about King’s love life.A decision in a 1977 court case brought by Bernard Lee, one of King’s associates, sealed the transcripts from those wiretaps until 2027. But King’s associates confirm there were at least two cases in which FBI surveillance caught King in compromising circumstances.The first incident involved King at a party at the Willard Hotel in Washington. The FBI recorded the party and captured the sounds of a sexual encounter in the room afterwards. The second incident occurred during King’s stay in a hotel in Los Angeles, California. There, agents heard another drunken gathering in which King told an off-color joke about the recently assassinated President John F. Kennedy. Hoover sent transcripts and excerpts of those recordings to the White House and to the attorney general……..Hoover’s contempt for King’s private behavior is clear in the memos he kept in his personal files. His scrawl across the bottom of positive news stories about King’s success dripped with loathing.On a story about King receiving the St. Francis peace medal from the Catholic Church, he wrote “this is disgusting.” On the story “King, Pope to Talk on Race,” he scribbled “astounding.” On a story about King’s meeting with the pope, “I am amazed that the Pope gave an audience to such a degenerate.” On a story about King being the heavy favorite to win the Nobel Prize, he wrote “King could well qualify for the ‘top alley cat’ prize!”When King learned he would be the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, the FBI decided to take its harassment of King one step further, sending him an insulting and thr

These are copied & pasted directly from a website. Please put this into your own words.1. His role in the Civil Rights movement:Martin Luther King, Jr. served as President of the Montgomery Improvement Association, the organization that was responsible for the successful Montgomery Bus Boycott from 1955 to 1956 (381 days). He was arrested thirty times for his participation in civil rights activities. He was a founder and president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference from 1957 to 1968. He was also Vice President of the National Sunday School and Baptist Teaching Union Congress of the National Baptist Convention. He was a member of several national and local boards of directors and served on the boards of trustees of numerous institutions and agencies. Dr. King was elected to membership in several learned societies including the prestigious American Academy of Arts and Sciences.2. His importance:Dr. King received numerous awards for his leadership in the Civil Rights Movement. Among them were the following:Selected as one of the ten most outstanding personalities of the year by Time Magazine, 1957.Listed in Who’s Who in America, 1957.The Spingarn Medal from the NAACP, 1957.The Russwurm Award from the National Newspaper Publishers, 1957.The Second Annual Achievement Award from The Guardian Association of the Police Department of New York, 1958.Selected as one of the sixteen world leaders who had contributed most to the advancement of freedom during 1959 by Ling Magazine of New Delhi, India.Named “Man of the Year, “ by Time Magazine, 1963.Named “American of the Decade,” by the Laundry, Dry Cleaning, and Die Workers, International Union, 1963.The John Dewey Award, from the United Federation of Teachers, 1964.The John F. Kennedy Award, from the Catholic Interracial Council of Chicago, 1964.The Nobel Peace Prize, at age 35, the youngest man, second American, and the third black man to be so honored, 1964.The Marcus Garvey Prize for Human Rights, presented by the Jamaican Government, posthumously, 1968.The Rosa L. Parks award, presented by The Southern Christian Leadership Conference, posthumously, 1968.The Aims Field-Wolf Award for his book, Stride Toward Freedom.The above awards and others, along with numerous citations, are in the Archives of The Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, Inc. in Atlanta, Georgia.PublicationsAlthough extremely involved with his family, his church, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, activities for peace and justice, his world travels, and his many speaking engagements, Dr. King wrote six books and numerous articles. His volumes include:Stride Toward Freedom, (New York: Harper & Row, 1958). The story of the Montgomery Bus Boycott.The Measure of a Man, (Philadelphia: Pilgrim Press, 1959). A selection of sermons.Why We Can’t Wait, (New York: Harper & Row, 1963). The story of the Birmingham Campaign.Strength to Love, (New York: Harper & Row, 1963). A selection of sermons.Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community? (New York: Harper & Row, 1967). Reflections on the problems of today’s world, the nuclear arms race, etc.The Trumpet of Conscience, (New York: Harper & Row, 1968). The Massey Lectures. Sponsored by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. (Posthumously).http://www.thekingcenter.org/index.asp3. It is a mistake to think of the modern civil-rights movement as being only about black people. Black Americans may have been out in front, but the movement was about more than getting a seat in a restaurant; it was about making America truer to its best self.Martin Luther King Jr., who has come to symbolize the movement, recognized that and saw beyond the battles of the moment. He looked toward universal human rights and toward brotherhood that transcended color and nationhood.He didn’t lose sight of immediate struggles, but his philosophy, his motivations and his goals were much larger.Still, it surprised many of his supporters when he began to speak more and more about the economic structures that made poverty inevitable for too many Americans. He surprised them even more when he spoke out against the Vietnam War and questioned America’s role in the world.When he was killed, King was organizing a poor people’s campaign that would cross racial boundaries to attack the economic structures that institutionalize poverty.Keeping anybody down hurts everybody.http://community.seattletimes.nwsource.c…Please put these in your own words.

Who knows about Martin Luther.
No not Martin Luther King Jr.The Martin Luther who wrote the 95 theses.What book did he translate into German?
Martin Luther was a German Catholic Priest. He began to see fallacy and corruption in the church of that day. He disagreed with many things that he was taught and constantly rebelled in a subtle manner. He eventually wrote the 95 Thesis as a protest against several practices by the church. One of the biggest compaint he had was the practice of Simony, where you could, supposedly, buy your way into heaven. He also disputed the position of Mary, the Mother of Jesus. He saw her as only a means to an end, not to be worshiped and glorified. He also questioned the power of the Pope. He thought that Rome should not tell Germany how to do things.He also translated the Bible from Latin to German. It was the first instance where common men could read and understand it without a Latin Education.This took a lot of power away from the Churches.
