Martin Luther King Jnr was a Hero in the true meaning of the word Hero simply because he was a person of note. He was a Hero in the sense that we understand heroes because of his bravery.

He showed Afro Americans and other minorities that they had the same rights to education and fair treatment as did white Americans. He did this by speaking to the nation and by using the power of the boycott. That is if a company does not treat you as an equal then you don't deal with that company.

Martin Luther King Jnr was instrumental in changing this for the better and for this he is a Hero.
