Dr. King was a highly educated man. A man who was esteemed throughout the world and he could communicate clearly and concisely to the masses.
He was thoughtful, appropriate and effective in his communication. He had behavioral flexibility and was process oriented. Dr. King could talk to celebrities, the President of the United States, Congressional committees and the average man on the street.
He not only communicated competently through oration he communicated competently through his writings. I encourage everyone to read "Letter from a Birmingham Jail". He elicits power and emotion, many will never be able to do, through this form of communication.
