There are lots of black people but these black people are one to be Martin Luther King Jr, Harriet Tubman, and Michael Jordon. First off Harriet Tubman was born in 1820. Harriet Tubman was born into slavery on that year. Tubman escaped and then made more than thirteen missions to rescue more than 70 slaves using the network of antislavery activists and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad. As a child in Dorchester County, Maryland Tubman was beaten by masters to whom she was hired to. Early in her life she suffered a severe head wound when hit by a heavy metal object. The injury caused disabling seizures, narcoleptic attacks, headaches, and powerful visionary and dream experiences which occurred throughout her life. Even though she was going through much she did not let that get in the way of doing what she knew was right. Tubman escaped to Philadelphia, then immediately returned to Maryland to rescue her family. Slowly, one group at a time, she brought relatives out of the state, and eventually guided dozens of other slaves to freedom. Traveling by night, Tubman never lost a passenger. When the American Civil War began, Tubman worked for the Union Army, first as a cook and nurse, and then as an armed scout and spy. The first woman to lead an armed expedition in the war, she guided the Combahee River Raid, which liberated more than 700 slaves in South Carolina. She is inspiring never give up no matter how hard it is. Next is Martin Luther king jr Martin Luther King was born on January 15, 1929 in Atlanta. A Baptist minister, King became a civil rights activist early in his career. He led the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott and helped found the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. King led an unsuccessful struggle against segregation in Albany, Georgia in 1962, and organized nonviolent protests in Birmingham, Alabama that attracted national attention following television news coverage of the brutal police response. 1963 March on Washington, where he delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech. There, he established his reputation as one of the greatest orators in American history. On October 14, 1964, King received the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality through nonviolence. In 1965, he and the SCLC helped to organize the Selma to Montgomery marches. In the final years of his life, King expanded his focus to include poverty and the Vietnam War, alienating many of his liberal allies with a 1967 speech titled "Beyond Vietnam". King was planning a national occupation of Washington, D.C., called the Poor People's Campaign. King was assassinated on April 4, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee. His death was followed by riots in many U.S. cities. Allegations that James Earl Ray, the man convicted of killing King, had been framed or acted in concert with government agents persisted for decades after the shooting, and the jury of a 1999 civil trial found Loyd Jowers to be complicit in a conspiracy against King. He died doing the things that put an serious impact on segregation. Finally we come down to Michael Jordon.
