A close analysis at Kings story will reveal an unimaginable tale of a strong human being who was able to rise above the prevailing situation and the propensity with which the situation was at that time was not easy and so for him to rise within that context must not only inspire Africans but also teach humanity a lesson. That which you believe in you must stand up for. I was personally inspired by Luther early on in life because having read the history of America and the tales of the slave trade and then reading about a young man standing up in that realm to find a voice and speak out against injustice is the most inspirational and selfless a human being can do for humanity. I am convinced that at that time with what was going on to black people he would have known the risks involved and the perilous outcome of his activism would have been one that he must have thought about and envisaged but that did not deter him.
