Top Ten African American Figures Who Changed the Worldroblist
The Top Ten
With all the respect to the greatest rapper ever; Tupac did not change the world, and neither did Michael Jackson. Martin Luther King Jr. is the only one on this list who has actually made a difference. And a quite big one, indeed.
He fought for civil rights in America, and he followed non-Violent teachings like Mahatama Gandhi - roblist
Martin has changed history way more then Michael jackson
He was like each and every one of us, only one difference. He put his dreams into action. He fought for equality, not only for him but for everyone who was being treated badly. Unlike other people, he tried to make things right. Thank you for reading😃😃V 9 Comments
A poet and Rapper, Tupac changed the world with his songs talking about how life is unfair and we should all get along, he was endlessly battling for equality in the world, and is considered a Legend of Rap - roblist
he has changed the world with his music and the way he talked there for i believe that tupac is the one one african american figure in the world because of his music and his lyrics soo everyone vote for tupac
Pac would of made a bigger impacted than he already did if he didn't die so early. If most of the people died at 25 they wouldn't of made much of a change but Pac did though a way that younger people respond to... Music RIP tupac
I like his music RIPV 14 Comments
The greatest boxer who ever lived, also a poet who fought not only for championships but for respect, an inspirational person - roblist

First black president, what else needs to be said? - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
Seeing this on this list made me sad. Obama in front of Morgan Freeman. Sad sad days.
Yes We can
He brought pure magic to the world. Brought awareness. Brought joy, escapism, bliss to the public. Fought against racism, prejudice, and other global causes. Awarded for being a celebrity who donated the most money to 30+ charities. Visited as many orphanages as he went on tours, bring toys to all the children and autographing their items. He was directly involved in cutting world hunger and spreading a global campaign of peace, unity, love, and equality. This was an amazing man.
Changed the world? He didn't changed me or the music that I'm listening. In 1977 he was part of the " Disco" movement ( he wasn't called King of Pop back then ) but I can tell you for sure ( in Europe at least ) that in 1977 " Punk " has changed the world ( post-punk, New Wave, Dark Wave, Electro-Wave, Industrial etc... came after the punk influences ). Just because he had a big selling album in the eighties doesn't mean that everything else in music changed ( not every black artist changed his music or adopted his music because of him ). He changed the Videoclip concept? Believe me, theme-clips were invented in the sixties ( just look at the clip of " Dead end street by THE KINKS.). Choreografy dancing? He didn't invented that. Too overrated just like most persons on this list. Martin Luther King Jr. should be first on this list. Without him there would be no Michael Jackson or Tupac. He really changed the world for African Americans! Not those singers.
MJ changed the world would his songs, and soon became the King of Pop and soon after that The Greatest Singer in the World - roblist
