Martin Luther King Jr. is one of the most influential black people in American history. He was the leader of the now-iconic Civil Rights Movement. He managed to preach for non violence, economic backlash, and racial unity against the dangerous racism that the United States placed in front of him. He successfully influenced politicians to pass bills, ending all legal segregation and discrimination. He also helped change the entire culture and narrative on race. Deciding that Americans should not misjudge people for being a certain skin color.
MLK is a great influence for young black men and he deserves all of the praise that he gets. Happy MLK everyone.
