Martin Luther King’s Ideals of Non-Violent Social Changes in Relation to the Civil Rights Movement and Legal System of His Time and Since

This is a 6 page paper outlining Martin Luther King’s messages on non-violence and brotherly love on the legal system during his time and in modern day. An outline of the civil rights movements during the time of Martin Luther King and their effects on the legal system in the United States were prominent in their time but have since evolved into quite a different movement in today’s society. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, King and his colleagues promoted the non-violent action towards peace and equality among men and women in the country. Inspired by Gandhi’s non-violent ideals, King was often criticized by other activists of the “black power” movement who demanded more action and protests rather than peaceful initiatives. Nevertheless, because of many of the peaceful initiatives backed by King affiliated well developed organizations, many civil rights policies were implemented in the legal system during King’s time. In the years since King’s death however, the social movements in the black and social rights communities have changed into more conservative movements and focused largely on the political climate and unemployment, illegal drugs, violence and urban blight.
