A Case Study on Strategic Leadership
Introduction
The individual who I am going to conduct my strategic leader case study on is Martin Luther King Jr., who was born a preacher’s son, in 1929, in Atlantic, Georgia.

“On the night of January 27, 1956, when he was just 27 years old, Martin Luther King Jr. received a threatening phone call that would cause his life to change forever” (This day in History Jan. 15, 2018). His house was firebombed by white supremacists who thought that would end Mr. King’s activism but that just made him even stronger. This little bit of history about the leader I will write about is only one small area that will help to explain why I chose him to do my strategic leadership plan on.
