The Independent touts the following 50 Greatest Visionaries. Among them:

Martin Luther King 1929-1968

36

“I have a dream,” he declared to a vast crowd at Washington’s Lincoln Memorial on 28 August 1963. The dream was that Americans could be Americans, regardless of skin colour. The FBI stalked him as if he were a communist, and a white racist killed him but, 40 years later, the Barack Obama story is bringing King’s vision closer to reality.

The Independent’s list is quick, as a newspaper does, and engaging. A great reading list? Who do you think is missing?
