Biography of Martin Luther King Jr

Dr. Martin Luther King led a civil rights movement for 13 years (from 1955 until 1968). He worked for racial equality in America. Dr. King promoted nonviolence.

Drawing inspiration from his Christian faith, Dr. King led a nonviolent movement to achieve legal equality for African-Americans in the United States. While others were advocating for freedom by “any means necessary,” including violence, Martin Luther King, Jr. used the power of words and acts of nonviolent resistance, such as protests, grassroots organizing, and civil disobedience to achieve seemingly-impossible goals.

He went on to lead similar campaigns against poverty and international conflict, always maintaining fidelity to his principles that men and women everywhere, regardless of color or creed, are equal members of the human family. He emerged as one of the most important social leaders of the modern history.

In 1955, he was recruited to serve as spokesman for the Montgomery Bus Boycott to force integration of the city’s bus lines. After 381 days of nearly universal participation by citizens of the black community, many of whom had to walk miles to work each day as a result, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that racial segregation in transportation was unconstitutional.

The subsequent brutality of the city’s police, illustrated most vividly by television images of young blacks being assaulted by dogs and water hoses, led to a national outrage and changes in legislation.

In 1964, Congress passed the Civil Rights Act, eliminating racial segregation in the United States. It is now illegal to discriminate against blacks or other minorities in hiring, public accommodations, education or transportation. After this Dr. King shifted his focus toward economic justice.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s leadership ended abruptly and tragically on April 4th, 1968, when he was assassinated in Tennessee. Dr. King’s funeral ceremony was attended by high-level leaders of all races and nationalities.

He is memorialized in hundreds of statues, parks, streets, squares, churches and other public facilities around the world as a leader whose teachings are increasingly-relevant to the progress of humankind.

Dr. Martin Luther King led a freedom movement for many years, in the 1950s and 60s. He worked for equality in America. He drew inspiration from his Christian faith.  

Other people wanted freedom by “any means,” which including fighting. Martin used the power of words and protests, to make his point.  

He tried to prevent poverty and conflict in the world. His values were that men and women everywhere, regardless of color or creed, were equal members of the human family.

He won equality for all races in the United States. He is known as one of the most important social leaders of history.

The children have been learning the first part of the story where Jacob favours this son and buys him a coat of many colours, as part of this week’s Musical theme. So they have the basis of a story in the lyrics they already know. I’ve sent these home on a separate sheet and they are below. The music will help them remember the words. For the BIG WRITE they can write the lyrics or put it in story form. Write key words here to help jog the memory.

TALK HOMEWORK for Thursday 11th February 2016

Next week we will remain with the Anglo-Saxons for an end of half term feast. Next Thursday the children will have a banquet of Anglo-Saxon food, dance, shelter and weapon making. We will prepare the food on Wednesday and children can dress-up for their banquet on Thursday. They will need 50p towards to cost of the food.

 

In Literacy we will be reading through a couple of Saxon recipes. But for BIG WRITE preparation if you talk through the feast and help get them dressed, that will be preparation for this week. The spelling lists are becoming more challenging and will need some practise. This is a useful website for explaining how Saxons ate in family groups:

Honey, Oat and Spiced Cakes

The Anglo Saxons were farmers, but they traded too and a well off farmer might have used spices on special occasions. They would have been terribly expensive and very precious. Cinnamon, used here, has been known for a long time and it was highly prized amongst ancient nations.
Pottage - a vegetable soup

The ordinary people ate a lot of pottage in Medieval Britain. It is a vegetable soup, flavoured with herbs and thickened with oats. It is very nutritious. The root vegetables were considered only fit for the common folk and were not eaten by the wealthy. The ordinary people would not have been able to afford much meat, so would rely on this soup as their staple diet with bread and cheese.

Ingredients

1 litre of water (adding some vegetable stock powder or cube makes it tastier).
A selection of the following vegetables (about 250g of each will do):

  • Cabbage, carrots, celery
  • green beans, leeks
  • onions, parsnips
  • sorrel turnips
  • garlic - one or two cloves will do

A selection of fresh herbs chosen from: basil, marjoram, parsley, rosemary, sage, thyme,

  • 2tbs oats (porridge oats)

Making and cooking it

  1. Wash and prepare the vegetables - e.g. taking off outer skins etc
  2. Chop the vegetables and the herbs
  3. Put them all into the stock and bring the soup to the boil.
  4. Turn down the heat and simmer until vegetables are cooked.
  5. Add enough oats to thicken and simmer again until cooked.

Easier recipe: Honey, Oat and Spiced Cakes


The Anglo Saxons were farmers, but they traded too and a well off farmer might have used spices on special occasions. They would have been terribly expensive and very precious. Cinnamon, used here, has been known for a long time and it was highly prized amongst ancient nations.

When cooked, these cakes are a little like a crumbly flapjack.

Ingredients

 

  • 250g oats (use Scottish porridge oats)
  • 125g unsalted butter
  • 50g chopped dried apricots or dried apples
  • 4 large tablespoons runny honey
  • 1 level teaspoon of ground cinnamon

Making and cooking it

  1. Preheat oven to 180C.

  2. In a large saucepan over a low heat, melt the butter and remove from the heat

  3. Stir in the oats, dried fruit and honey until well mixed

  4. Spoon dollops of the mixture onto a well-greased baking sheet and flatten slightly

  5. Bake in the oven for 10 – 12 minutes or until golden

  6. Gently lift cakes onto a wire rack and leave to cool.
