MLK and Black Power

I really enjoyed reading Sernett’s reading on Martin Luther King and the civil rights movement. Martin Luther King Jr. went to and got locked up in Birmingham Jail for leading the civil rights movement. Even though he got locked up in Birmingham Jail, I liked how he encouraged the black community to keep fighting for they believe in having the same amount of power as white people do. Martin Luther King Jr doesn’t lead a raid to make African Americans get their balance of power that they deserve. Instead, he does it in a more nonviolent way. He leads a march of black people fighting for what they believe in. In my opinion, Martin Luther King Jr, trying to fight for power lead to the creation of black power. Black people were sick and tired of the problem of having little power.
