The significance of RANKIN was in its mere existence, for it reflected a political sophistication no less intense than that of the English, and it indicated the political importance that the Americans attached to the possession of German soil rather than the Balkans.

Martin Luther King

An American clergyman, activist and prominent leader in the African-American civil rights movement. His main legacy was to secure progress on civil rights in the United States and he is frequently referenced as a human rights icon today.
