Martin Luther King

A Leader in Conflict Resolution

Virtual Assembly Program for Grades K-8


Martin Luther King loved to read, and he loved to learn – and was pretty good at football and shootin’ hoops, too. Though he struggled with how to effectively resolve conflicts when he was young, as he grew older, the gentle coaching of his parents and teachers, along with his own self-education, led him to fully embrace the strategies of peaceful conflict resolution in every facet of his life.  He then applied these strategies to lead a revolutionary change in America, which paved the way for equal rights for everyone. His inspiring story will complement conflict resolution strategies taught in schools today, helping students better understand and practice the use of empathy, listening, respectfulness and effective communication in resolving their own conflicts peacefully.
