Martin Luther King’s fight for the equal worth of all people extended beyond the United States. In South Africa a severe form of segregation prevailed, known as “apartheid,” which King took a stand against. In an attention-getting speech, King took a stand against the United States’ war in Vietnam. This was not only an advocacy of peace, but also a demand for reallocation of resources from warfare to measures for economic justice. The protest against the Vietnam war was controversial, and King was criticized for it. Among African-American activists, King’s non-violence principle also was challenged more openly, and the more militant Black Power movement gained momentum.
