There have been a lot of famous people during the 20th and 21th Century that have made a impact on society. There have been some that have made a bad and good impact on society. The one famous person I can think of is Martin Luther King Jr.
Martin Luther King Jr. was born on January 15, 1929, in Atlanta, Georgia. Dr. King was both a Baptist minister and civil-rights activist. Through his leadership, he had a great part in ending the legal separation of African American from Caucasians. King created the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights of 1964. King was the middle child of ...view middle of the document...

King was in a time where African American and Caucasians didn’t get along. Dr. King grew up where you had to use separate restroom from Caucasians and go to different school. Growing up and be around that, sparked an interest to promote love towards one another. He dealt with a lot of moral issues among the human kind. Even when Caucasians blew his house up, he still showed love. He practiced what he thought rather and live two different lives. During those times there was all kind of emotions issues among the races.
During the era of King, psychology really played a big part in human behavior. The behavior consisted of violence and not being accepted.

During that time Caucasians considered themselves as the superior race but really not race is greater than another. King wanted to show everyone that there is only one human race. African American was called all kinds of names and it sparked a lot of violence. How can a person really hate someone because they are different? Being different is what makes people unique. King knew it wasn’t in God’s will for everyone to be divided over the color of a person’s skin.
With human nature, people are violent against violent but Dr King stood for nonviolence. Dr. King was treated as if he was dog but still showed that you can still love the other people regardless. During his time in College, he was in a relationship with a Caucasian woman. Even though everyone was against it, it really didn’t matter to him. Dr. King saw only one human race, and not division. Dr. King had a dream that everyone could work together regardless of what background you came from. He showed love so He could nurture to the behavior of hate. He wanted to lead by example and not just talk about it.
King worked with the NAACP and fought for Civil Rights. King wanted to make his dream become reality. One of the famous speeches, “I have a Dream” painted a picture of everyone being equal. His speech opened the minds of others to...
