I believe that Martin Luther King Jr. is a good nominee because he was one of the ones who made blacks freedom a permanent thing. If you think about it, he was kind of the one who started it all. Without him, Rosa Parks might of stayed in jail. Blacks today might not be equal. He was a VERY important part of the Civil Rights movement. He had made several speeches in his life, including the '' I Have A Dream'' speech. That is why I picked Martin Luther King Jr. as my nominee.
