For his struggle based on the non-violence, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, the youngest of Nobel Prizes. Today, Luther King is regarded as one of the American leaders of the Non-Violence.

“I have a dream. We will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants, and Catholics will be able to join hands” Martin Luther King

Influenced by the thought of civil disobedience based on the non-violence of Henry David Thoreau and the vision of Mahatma Gandhi of the Independence process of India; he decided to base his entire struggle in non-violence. The philosophy of the Non-Violence of Leo Tolstoy also influenced on Martin Luther King.

“The teachings of Henry David Thoreau revived in our movement for non-violent struggle for civil rights” Martin Luther King

A professor of King, who had met Gandhi recommended visiting the Gandhi family in India. In a speech at an Indian radio 1959, King said:

“In a literal sense, Mahatma Gandhi incarnates in his life certain universal principles that are inherent in the moral structure of the universe, and these principles are as ineluctable as the law of gravity.” Martin Luther King
