             Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King Junior was a man with a vision; his vision helped  change our country forever.  He was a vital figure of the modern era, because he  revolutionized the way people thought about race.  Martin Luther King helped  lead the movement to end segregation and to bring racial equality to our great  nation.  He was born on January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia.  He lived a life of  generosity, and he always strived to help others.  He was also a very intelligent  man, attending college when he was only fifteen years old.  He was righteous,  courageous, and a great leader.  If Martin Luther King had not taken a stand for  what he believed in, our country might still be in a state of segregation and hate.  Prior to the civil rights movement led by King, numerous laws prevented black  people from obtaining equality.  African-Americans did not have several of the  freedoms that white people enjoyed, such as the right to vote.  Also, they could  not attend the same schools, eat at the same restaurants, or even use the same  restrooms as white people.  He did not do away with all types of segregation, but  he did help our country make a much needed step towards equality.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
