What did martin luther king jr do for blacks since lincoln was the one who freed the blacks?

Report as

MLK gave hope to blacks during the Civil Rights Movement. He also helped influence that blacks should not fight back if they were attacked by whites. Sit-ins, marches, and peaceful protests were all accomplished by MLK's motivation. Although the protests broke out in violence by the whites, they left significant marks in history due to the media showing how violent the whites were when the blacks were doing nothing back. This is what MLK wanted and it helped.

He fought for black rights. They were free from slavery but they were still widely discriminated and there were quite a few laws preventing them from living equally to the whites.
