King won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 on the strength of his non-violent approach to a huge social movement. King’s commitment to non-violence was central to his faith and his work. He talks about it here:
(I cannot seem to find who the interviewer is, or what TV show this was. It looks to be about the time of his Nobel Prize. I welcome any info!)
King also talks about his non-violent stance in this 1963 video from The American Experience with Dr. Kenneth Clark. King is quite clear that non-violence achieves more lasting results for a movement than does its opposite.
I hope these recorded moments inspire you to look further into King’s life, his work and legacy, and his marvelous humanity. Have a great weekend, everyone! Peace!
