#7. Martin Luther King, Jr
Martin Luther King Jr. was an American Baptist minister and activist who was a leader in the Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolent civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs. He believed that he could change the world with non-violent protests, which he did. He organised marches, parades and campaigns against racial segregation and dedicated his life to overcoming this racist policy which the government held in place. He was killed for his determination to bring justice to people who were judged and treated horribly because of the colour of their skin.
