Martin Luther King Jr. – recipient of the 1964 Nobel Peace prize. His acceptance speech and biography can be found here.

Dr. King is described with one line on Wikiquotes:

A Visionary – A Man Ahead of his Times as seen from the above quote.
“I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest…I have a dream…freedom and justice” This video is his infamous 1964 speech speaking for justice for the black people of America. He was valued though for so much more.
