I would choose Dr. Martin Luther King because he was a legend. I highly regard him as one of the greatest and most influential men to ever have lived. This man stood up against tremendous adversity peacefully and thus helped drastically change the world for the better.

I would love to speak to Harriet Tubman because I would like to know all of the chaos and confusion that she had to go through to get everyone in compliance with the underground railroad.
