MLK wanted all people to have the same rights, the right to vote, to eat anywhere, to have a good job, back in this day black people could not do a lot of things that white people could do.
Using civil disobdience (non-violent protests and peace rallies), Martin Luther King Jr. encouraged the African American community to fight for civil rights without violence. MLK's persistence led to the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom in 1963, where he gave his famous "I Have a Dream" speech. Shortly after, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed.
Lasted about two months in 1963, the Birmingham campaign was started by Dr. King's Southern Christian Leadership Conference to end discriminatory economic policies in the Alabama city. They boycotted certain businesses that hired only white people and segregated restrooms. When businesses refused to change their policies, protesters held sit-ins and marches, to get arrested. King encouraged these nonviolent tactics so that the city’s jails would overflow.
