Kamehameha is an effective, strong, helpful, and wise leader. He would always try to do what's best for his people. He is helpful and wise, which makes him even more special. From the time when he helped with the war torn land (23), to when he would place kapu’s (26), he was an amazing leader. Hawaii wouldn’t be the same without King Kamehameha.
Kamehameha and Mohanda Gandhi were both effective leaders because they were persuasive, they both had a crucial effect on the society, and they both were very convincing to other people. Gandhi came from a low-class family in India, his father was a chief minister of Porbandar and his mother was a practitioner of Vaishnavism. Gandhi was appalled by discrimination that he experienced during his immigration in South Africa. Kamehameha was raised by his uncle, Kalani`opu`u who was the former ruler of the Big Island. Kamehameha’s conquest was to unite all the Hawaiian islands, and he was able to succeed.
They were both born into royalty. Mandela was imprisoned in 1964 and wasn’t released until 1990. He became a worldwide symbol during this time, then became the first black president of South Africa. Kamehameha was the first Hawaiian to unite all the Hawaiian islands. After the unification of the islands, he worked hard to trade and keep his kingdom under control.
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, more commonly known as ‘Mahatma’ (meaning ‘Great Soul’), was the leader of the Indian independence movement during the British Raj. Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. India won independence from Britain in 1947, thanks in large part to Gandhi's peaceful civil disobedience campaign. After independence, Gandhi kept active in his non-violence movement by trying to stop the Hindu-Muslim conflict in Bengal. He was also involved in opposing discriminatory legislation against Indians in South Africa.
Kwame Nkrumah. He was a member of the Mu Chapter at Lincoln University. I selected this respected man of Sigma, because he was the first president of the Republic of Ghana.

Muhammad Naguib became a leader after the war and became a hero and proved himself to be a fit leader. During the Egyptian defeat, Naguib “distinguished himself” (“Muhammad Naguib”) After the war in 1948, “he had been one of the very few military men seen as a hero” (“Aboulenein”) B. By becoming a hero, Naguib was the leader that everyone wanted to follow. Not only did he become a leader, but “he became president of the newly formed republic”(“Muhammad Naguib”). He was also “elected as head of the officers
Everything from his music and clothes that he gave to Beneatha to his attitude towards American black culture suggests that he disapproves of the new black culture he is engulfed in. Asagai also wants to share his culture and try to convert other assimilated blacks like Beneatha to support his traditional Nigerian culture. This is very controversial, especially since Nigerian culture is commonly thought to be constructed on living in “grass huts”. Like the Youngers, Asagai is fighting against the common black culture of Chicago and wishes for more blacks to embrace what he sees as the true culture of the blacks. The only person who really wants to embrace the black culture that Asagai professes is Beneatha and even she has misconceptions of what Nigerian culture truly is.
He writes in his “Pilgrimage to Nonviolence” that he had almost given up hope on the previously explained Christian philosophy of nonviolence working, but then he heard of Mahatma Gandhi. Gandhi was able to fight for India’s independence from Britain using nonviolent practices. King further writes that while on a trip to India he was surprised to see that “the aftermath of hatred and bitterness that usually follows a violent campaign is found nowhere in India.” Armed with the knowledge that after a nonviolent protest there is none of these ugly feelings left over, gave King even more reasons to continue to strive for nonviolence. He wanted African Americans and whites to be equals, having to deal with all the messiness of a violent protest would have delayed this
“In these early years, Boukman, originally from Jamaica was the leading thinker and strategist” (Beckles and Shepherd 184). Boukman was a commander in the French military where he learned to use European arms and afterward he was the leader that gave directions to start the rebellion. The slaves knew him as ‘Zamba’ which was a spiritual leader in the voodoo faith and therefore was considered to be larger than life and thought to be immortal. Therefore when he was killed it broke the spirit of his followers. Another leader that assisted in the Haitian revolution is Toussaint L’Ouverture’s, who was the son of an educated slave.
