Martin Luther King Jr. and his followers succeeded in showing America how to truly stand for freedom, how to truly achieve peace, how to truly be an “American”. Other Blacks like Malcolm X failed to do this, and he is a great example of what not to do.

Ithow Ali is idolized for his courage, in how he defied the draft board, and how he always continued to fight even after his prime was long gone.

On April 16th, 1963, after being thrown in jail for protesting segregation in the height of the American Civil Rights Movement, Martin Luther King Jr., a civil rights activist and pastor, in his letter entitled Letter from Birmingham City Jail, urges for social equality in America and justifies his use of nonviolent protest.

Bono, the author of the song “Pride,” achieves his purpose of emphasizing that many fallen heros died because they were fighting for the greater good of humanity, through the use of powerful allusions, a strong tone, and consistent repetition. Bono uses identifiable allusions to achieve his purpose. He does this by using these allusions as examples of these inspirational leaders that he is referring to as well as showcase the importance of their protests.
