    Abstract: Leaders of the Struggle: Commonalities between Dr. Martin Luther King and Tupac Shakur

    Mentor: Dr. Sean Chabot, Sociology

    The black struggle has produced many voices that sought to articulate the pains of the black masses. Tupac Shakur and Martin Luther King were two of the greatest voices produced by this struggle. This paper explores the idea that these two great men had more in common than people realize. It asserts that by highlighting their similarities, a new foundation can be created for reconciliation between the Hip-Hop Generation and the Civil Rights Generation.
