Attracted Large Crowds

King: Before the Montgomery Bus Boycott, King was a reluctant leader. But his speeches drew huge crowds and many famous admirers and friends like Harry Belafonte.

Obama: Drawing enormous crowds throughout his presidential campaign, Obama drew criticism as a “rock star.” Celeb supporters include Oprah and Will Smith.
