Winston Churchill

Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill (30 NOV 1874 - 24 JAN 1965) was a British politician known chiefly for his leadership during WW2, but he was also an artist, historian and writer. He served as Prime Minister from 1940-45, and from 1951-55. He had a speech impediment, which he overcame, for the most part, in adulthood. As a child, he did poorly in school, for which he was punished. Time magazine included him as one of the 100 most influential leaders in history. (from the wiki, accessed 03-16-10)

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. 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 in 1957, serving as its first president. King's efforts led to the 1963 March on Washington, where King delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech. There, he raised public consciousness of the civil rights movement and established himself as one of the greatest orators in U.S. history.

The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is.
