Martin Luther King Jr. Wiki Biography

Michael King Jr. was born on the 15th January 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, and was a minister of Baptist religion, activist as well as a humanitarian and a writer who, as Martin Luther King Jr., was widely recognized for being the most prominent leader of the African-American Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s. He was best known for his tempting rhetorical skills, nonviolent doctrine, and his fight against segregation as well as for being the First President of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in 1968.

Have you ever wondered how much wealth this globally influential activist has accumulated for life? How rich would Martin Luther King Jr. be nowadays? According to sources, it is estimated that the total net worth of Martin Luther King Jr., as of early 2018, would revolve around the sum of $250,000 acquired primarily through his Civil Rights Movement engagements.

Martin was the middle child of Alberta Williams King and Martin Luther King Sr., and apart from African-American was also of Irish descent. He went to Booker T. Washington High School, where he first expressed his talent for public speaking, before attending Morehouse College from which he graduated in 1948 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology. King then continued his education at Crozer Theological Seminary from which he earned his Bachelor of Divinity degree in 1951. He then transferred to Boston, Massachusetts, where he began serving as an assistant minister at the Twelfth Baptist Church, and also enrolled at Boston University from which he graduated in 1955with his Doctor of Philosophy degree in systematic theology.

In December 1955, as a member of the Birmingham African-American community King led the Montgomery bus boycott which lasted for over a year. In 1957, alongside Fred Shuttlesworth, Ralph Abermathy and Joseph Lowery, King co-founded the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), a civil rights organization focused on organizing non-violent protests in order to unite black churches and reform the civil rights law of that era; King served as its inaugural holder and its first president between 1957 and 1968. It is certain that all these involvements somehow provided the basis for the net worth of Martin Luther King Jr.

As the president of the SCLC, King was also involved in founding the Big Six organization, and was one of the main leaders of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in August 1963, during which he gave his famous “I Have A Dream” speech. For all these efforts, in 1964 King was honored with the Nobel Peace Prize. All these endeavors helped Martin Luther King Jr. to dramatically raise not only his popularity and modest wealth, but also the collective conscience concerning the African-American Civil Rights Movement.

In 1965, Martin Luther King Jr. participated in the Selma to Montgomery march, while in 1966 he co-founded the Chicago Freedom Movement. He was also strongly opposed to the USA’s engagement in the Vietnam War, and was also involved in the organizing the rather controversial Poor People’s Campaign in 1968. During planning the latter campaign, propagating the national occupation of the Washington D.C., on the 4th April 1968 Martin Luther King Jr. was murdered by James Earl Ray in Memphis, Tennessee.

The death of Marin Luther King Jr. caused an avalanche of race riots across the US during the late 1960s and through the 1970s, bringing about the adoption of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 (known also as the Fair Housing Act) which prohibited racial discrimination. He also inspired South Africa’s Black Consciousness Movement, and posthumously became the icon of progressivism and liberalism. Apart from those already mentioned, King also published six literacy works including “Strength to Love” (1963) and “The Trumpet of Conscience” (1968). In the decades since, he has served as an inspiration for a handful of books and biographies. Posthumously, Martin Luther King Jr. was rewarded with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977, as well as with the Congressional Gold Medal in 2004.

He was survived by his wife, Coretta Scott King, to whom he was married from 1953 until his death in 1968; their four children – Yolanda Denise King, Martin Luther King III, Dexter Scott King and Bernice King have all followed in their father’s footsteps, and continued his fight for civil rights, particularly relating to black Americans.

1His mustache
2Hopes for equality between every ethnicity
3Powerful speeches
1In the end, we will not remember the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
2He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love.
3Our lives begin to end the day we remain silent about things that matter.
4There is this word we hear so often now, "Maladjusted". Well, in this Cause I am proud to be Maladjusted.
5[on the Birmingham church bombing, September 23, 2013] God still has a way of wringing good out of evil. And history has proven over and over again that unmerited suffering is redemptive. The innocent blood of these little girls may well serve as a redemptive force that will bring new light to this dark city.
6Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
7Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
8We fought hard and long and I have never doubted that we would prevail in the struggle. Already our rewards have begun to reveal themselves. Desegregation. The Voting Rights Act. But what deeply troubles me now is that for all the steps we have taken toward integration, I've come to believe we're integrating into a burning house. I guess we're just going to have to become firemen.
9We live in a failed system. Capitalism does not permit an even flow of economic resources. With this system, a small privileged few are rich beyond conscience, and almost all others are doomed to be poor at some level. That's the way the system works. And since we know that the system will not change the rules, we are going to have to change the system.
10I am more concerned about doing a good job, doing something for humanity and what I consider the will of God, than about longevity. Untimately it isn't so important how long you live. The important thing is how well you live.
11Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' And vanity comes along and asks the question, 'Is it popular?' But conscience asks the question, 'Is it right?'
12It may be true that the law can't change the heart, but it can restrain the heartless.
13I submit to you that if a man hasn't discovered something he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
14It may be true that the law cannot make a man love me, but it can keep him from lynching me, and I think that's pretty important.
15Don't let anybody make you think God chose America as His divine messianic force to be a sort of policeman of the whole world. God has a way of standing before the nations with justice and it seems I can hear God saying to America, "You're too arrogant, and if you don't change your ways, I will rise up and break the backbone of your power, and I will place it in the hands of a nation that doesn't even know my name. Be still and know that I'm God. Men will beat their swords into plowshafts and their spears into pruning hooks, and nations shall not rise up against nations, neither shall they study war anymore." I don't know about you, I ain't going to study war anymore.
16Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter."
17[from his final speech, 3 April 1968] We've got some difficult days ahead. But it doesn't matter with me now. Because I've been to the mountaintop. And I don't mind. Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the promised land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land. And I'm happy, tonight. I'm not worried about anything! I'm not fearing any man! Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord!
18In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silense of our friends.
19[referring to Mohandas K. Gandhi and his philosophy of non-violence] Jesus gave me the message, Gandhi showed me the method.
20A nation or civilization that continues to produce soft-minded men purchases its own spiritual death on the installment plan.
21I have a dream, that my four little children will grow up in a nation where they will not judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
22If I wish to compose or write or pray or preach well, I must be angry. Then all the blood in my veins is stirred, and my understanding is sharpened.
