India

King traveled to India in 1959 in a trip that helped to solidify his stance on nonviolent activism. But King wasn’t the only one inspired by the trip. Since his death, Indians have also been inspired by King and Gandhi alike.

 

“Since being in India, I am more convinced than ever before that the method of nonviolent resistance is the most potent weapon available to oppressed people in their struggle for justice and human dignity,” King said(Photo: SAM PANTHAKY/AFP/Getty Images)
