Martin Luther King Jr. had a significant impact on society in terms of civil rights for the less privileged and created a model for peaceful protest. It is important for everyone to know who King is because of his impact on today’s society. If it was not for him society would still be heavily segregated. White patriotic people would still have advantages in their schools and society that “colored” people did not. King is a humongous icon in America’s society today, we even have a special holiday for him celebrated every third monday of January. Even though he helped “colored” people win their civil rights America’s society is still racist to a certain extent. He is still an icon for peaceful protesting.
