Leaders of Great Movements

King: As the public face of the civil rights movement, King's power attracted not only thousands of supporters and activists, but concern from the government.

Obama: During his presidential campaign, Obama inspired a movement for hope and change that took over the country. Since his inauguration, it has morphed into a philosophy that has reset American policy both at home and abroad.
