  2. The idea was to change peoples minds about segregation and I think it is and was important because the people would have different things to use (EX:blacks would have a worse treatment and worse items than the whites) and then everybody wouldn't have equal rights

    Black people and white people should be treated the same. Black and white now get along together. People should be judged by what comes from the inside and how they act; not the outside. We admire him because he was brave and he never gave up!
