All of these examples are struggles of oppressed people against the establishment. Each example has a history to it that reflects the black struggle in the United States. King was, for example, a great admirer of Mahatma Gandhi. Gandhi brought India to independence from Britain using non-violent strategies like passive resistance, which King tried to emulate.
