Martin Luther King Jr. is a significant historical figure. He promoted peace and nonviolent protest.
It might seem counterproductive to show compassion for one’s oppressors, but Dr. King knew it was more than a decent thing to do. He knew that kindness could move mountains. MLK is even still relevant today.
Dr. King’s legacy has influenced many young people of today. This includes many rappers. In an industry that often advocated for divisiveness and hatred, Dr. King is a shining light of a good example.
