27. I agree
There certainly was revolution in the air during that time period and I believe there was a deliberate attempt to stop it. I'm certain the world would be a FAR different place than it is today if they would have been able to see their dreams and visions to fruition.

I think you have to include Malcolm X on your list as well. Although he has been demonized to some extent, he did have an awakening after he traveled to Mecca. He had softened his militant stance and was ready to join whites to focus on the issues of social and economic justice. Of course, that's why he was then taken out.

I really believe our current observance of MLK Day does a great injustice to his legacy by so narrowly focusing on his efforts in the civil rights movement. His voice resonated far beyond that cause.
