  2. Would this be a good answer?

    Civil disobedience is defined as the belief that people have the right to disobey the
    law under certain circumstances and it was an important part in the Civil Rights Movement. Using civil disobedience, Martin Luther King Jr. tried to emphasize non violence by developing a strategy and disobeying unjust laws. This was used in his marches, his speeches and various other things. Civil disobedience is also attributed to the desegregation of public buses when Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat. This was an important milestone during this time.

  3. This is good.

    I'd add that Dr. King told his followers not to fight back when they were attacked or arrested.
