Best Answer

Gandhi's philosophy greatly influenced Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the African-American community in general. In 1959, Dr. King preached about the significance of Gandhi's 1928 salt march and his quest to end discrimination for India's "untouchables." Dr. King felt that Gandhi's nonviolent approach would lead to the end of racial discrimination in America.
