The issue of segregation and unjust laws and practices for African Americans had been going on for decades. Most people either accepted them or ignored them. Dr. King brought these issues to the forefront by making public speeches and organizing peace marches. He called public attention to the problem so it could no longer be ignored.
African American human right movement leader, very famous black man in hes time. I think hes only mistake was keeping the nation in 2 sections, black and white americans , it shouldnt matter what color you are, but it does matter that you are an american.
