I think that Mandela had a lot more courage than MLK Jr. Mandela lived in a country whose government was corrupted when MLK Jr. lived in a country whose people were corrupted. Mandela’s government was corrupted and he went up against his government and went to jail for 28 years making him separated from his family like it said in the excerpt from his book.
MLK Jr. went up against the people in his country. He went to jail for short amounts of time and the federal government got him out because he was put in jail unjustly. He did not get separated from his family near as much as Mandela did. They still were both against segregation between white people and black people. They both protested to end segregation in there country against blacks.
