It's more a question of how the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is related to Martin Luther King's speech, since it pre-dates his speech by 15 years. The UDHR was adopte…d by the U.N. in 1948, whilst King gave his famous speech in '63. King made reference in his speech to certain basic human freedoms and rights that are specified in the various Articles of the UDHR, although he didn't mention the UDHR specifically. These basic rights included freedom of association, the fact that all human beings are created equal regardless of race, colour or creed, and the right to freedom of speech. Also the right to work for the same amount of pay as people of other races, and the right not to suffer harrassment or persecution because of your race or your colour. For more info. on the UDHR, try looking it up on Google- this should give you the Articles it contains number by number. Both addressed the need for civil rights
The "I Have a Dream" speech
His name was Michael King Jr. when he was born on January 15, 1929. He took the name "Martin Luther" at about the age of 5, following a visit by his family to Germany (birth…place of the religious leader Martin Luther).
martin Luther kings most famous speech was ' i had a dream '
Dr.Martin Luther King Jr's dream was "I have a dream that one day little black boys and little black girls will join hands as brothers and sisters with little white boys a…nd little white girls." To create a world without discrimination. In other words, to make the world a whole ball of happy.
His "I Have A Dream" speech, which he gave in 1963, the Year before he won the Nobel Peace Prize.
Alberta Williams King (1904-1974) married Michael King Sr. in 1926, before his name change to Martin Luther King (Sr.) in 1930. She had three children : Willie Christine (1927…), Michael Jr. (1929) and Alfred Daniel Williams King (1930).
Achieving affirmative action was a great accomplishment for the first time in history. It began the process of making sure that if a city is 50% black for example, the numbe…r of people in every job or profession should reflect that same percentage. Likewise, If White people and Asian people only MAKE UP 25% and 5% of people in a city, they should only make up 25% and 5% of people in each profession respectively. That would be evidence of a non racist society. that was his goal. Martian Luther King Jr. must have had a genius IQ to accomplish as much as he did. He also earned a PHd in Theology from Boston University. His IQ was probably somewhere between 140 and 180, maybe higher in my opinion. We Still have far to go to realize Dr. King's dream, because of continued Racism against African Americans as evidenced by failing to meet proportional representation in most jobs in most areas. In addition to the above comments: Martin Luther King Jr. was without argument one of the greatest spiritual and moral leaders in human history. But if you are looking for examples of his intellectual power, read "Letter from a Birmingham Jail". In it he demonstrates not only what a brilliant strategist he was in orchestrating civil rights actions, but how broad and deep his knowledge ran. He references not only biblical scripture, but western philosophers from Socrates to St. Thomas Aquinas to Martin Buber. I think he was one of the great thinkers of our time. I'm not an expert on IQ's but he was clearly a genius.
Martin Luther King Jr. made the big speech to end segregation and racial acts. His father was not famous. When people refer to Martin Luther King, they're usually referring to… Martin Luther King Jr.
