So, you must find what you can in his books to know what went around that time. You will have a lot more knowledge about his sacrifices than other people, and you will be able to educate them on this topic.
You will also get to know what kind of books inspired him, and if you can, give them a read as well. In the end, you will have some exceptional leadership qualities in you to ace in your particular field.
The “I Have A Dream” Speech
Apart from reading his books, listen to his famous “I Have A Dream” speech. The way he delivered this influential speech in front of 250,000 people. The way he starts his speech with “I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation…” and then goes on to say the most powerful words in history will give you goosebumps.
Print Out his Quotes
What Martin Luther King Jr. said and wrote has a strong meaning, and even now, we can relate to them.
