I think that Martin Luther King JR. was a great leader in our history because he was courageous, honest and he was determined. He used all of these great qualities that he had when he was fighting for the rights and freedom for blacks. I think he was courageous just for standing up against the whites that were biased against them just because of the color of their skin. He was always honest because gave his famous speeches and told everyone what he thought and what they should to stand up for themselves. He said what he believed and didn’t really care what he consequences were, as long as his opinions were out there. He was very determined in his quest for equal rights between whites and blacks, he was determined to lead this huge group of people that agreed with him and that also wanted to be equal to everyone else in the world.
