In the context of America in general how important was Dr. Martin Luther King?

Asked by JimTurner (1360 points ) January 17th, 2014

Dr. King helped the African Americans in the deep south unlock the chains of oppression but yet there must be more than just that to his story.

He has a national holiday named after him. Just about every major city has a street resurrected in his honor. He has his own statue in Washington D.C.

What set this man apart from his contemporaries?
