The Three Murderers of James Byrd

What role do leaders play in shaping the way a community responds to a crisis? And other crises?

Martin Luther King Jr. was known as a leader because he has done many things to help his community during a violence crisis. During much years of racism and abuse of blacks, King was the person to step up and give out his speeches to put a stop to the racism. After he died, many people were hugely impacted. Walter Diggles also was a leader. He was the person who gave the consequences for the three murderers of James Byrd. Many were satisfied and felt relieved after the three trials had passed and the white men did not get away with this case.
