Dr. King's Peaceful Protests a Lesson for Others

Hosted by

Racial segregation in the US was enforced by decades of police brutality, lynchings and other forms of violence. Familiar images from America's civil rights movement include the use of dogs, nightsticks and firehouses. Dr. Martin Luther King insisted that the response of civil rights marchers be disciplined non-violence. That's one of his greatest achievements, according to Bruce Bartlett, a conservative columnist who worked in the Reagan and first Bush Administrations.
