And when his house was bombed did he run away like a coward? No he did not. He stayed there and fought even harder to have laws passed that ended the segregation on busses. He told everyone that it wasn’t going to be an easy time. But they all listened to him because he made them believers. He didn’t strike back or try to get even with those that imprisoned him or tried to do him harm. He loved them even more. So his abdication of non-violence and his ideals to love those even more who try to do him harm facilitated a change. So he was prepared intellectually and expressed his ideals to the community who followed what he told them. And after boycotting the busses for 381 days his white counterparts met all of his and the communities demands. Similar to Martin Luther King Jr. was Reverend Ralph Abernathy. He also exhibited the style of a transformational leader. Much like Martin Luther King Jr. Reverend Abernathy used all of the same techniques that Martin Luther King Jr. used. He used charisma, individualized consideration, inspiration, and intellectual stimulation to cultivate a change. His status as a Reverend helped him to gain trust from his followed and built his respect in the community. He also had a vision that there needed to be a change in the community. He was tired of the segregated busses and the overall treatment of his people. At the first boycott meeting following Rosa Parks refusal to move from the seat she was sitting there was a lot of commotion. He simmered down the crowd and took control of the situation. He agreed with that the boycott should happen but there needed to be a plan. He took matters into his own hand and nominated Martin Luther King Jr. as the head of the boycott. Even though his voice wasn’t as powerful and commanding as Marin Luther King Jr. he still had a way with his audience. He was able to gather their attention with just a few words. As a Reverend you have a duty to hold.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
