Martin Luther King’s public and personal writings are different because his public writing is about our nation’s democracy, freedom, and the equality of all beings; his personal writing is about the oppression and discrimination of black Americans, in both his times and in the past.

His public writings discribes how our nation failed to provide democracy, freedom and equality to its citizens of color. “It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note insofar as her citizens of color are concerned”. His public writings’ objective is to justify his nonviolent movement by exposing and denouncing the inequality, police brutality, human rights abuse, and violence against black citizens.

The letters are words of Martin Luther King as a clergyindividual to glergymen who are equal in terms of religion for the moment, but yet so much apart by racial differences. In the letters, King explains the necessity of the human rights nonviolent struggle movement, King explains the historical abuse, and the inhumane suffering of slaves. Martin Luther Kings urges his people to join the protest, to join the nonviolent fight for human rights. His letters offer lots of analogies of the right to rise and seek freedom, King offers analogies based in historical facts for the movement to continue. King preaches his nonviolence philosophy over and over despite of all the violence received in the past and present agaist black Americans.These examples exposed the cruelty of racism. Martin Luther King was a genius of persuation through vivid examples and life experiences.

Martin Luther King is pasionate about his nonviolence struggle phllosophy, his belief in our nation’s constitution, the founding father, freedom and human rights. I learned that I need to read more of his writings, and I learned that Martin Luther King advocacy for human rights is fundamental in the history of the United States.

The key communication lessons that I learned from Martin Luther King are his passion, conviction of his beliefs, and his determination to convince people with facts, analogies, and suffering experiences of black people. “ThIs “wait” has almost always mean “never””., “Like a boil that can never be cured as long as it is covered up but must be opened with all its pus-flowing ugliness to the natural medicines of air and light, injustice must likewise be exposed, with all of the tension its exposing creates, to the light of human conscience an the air of national opinion before it can be cured.”. This is an impactable analogy of phisiological suffering in the human body and human right abuses. There is no question that Martin Luther King is an American Hero!
