If you could choose any historical figure to give a TED Talk, who would it be and why?

This one is pretty open-ended. I'm curious to know who you would choose for a TED Talk, why, and maybe what you think their "idea worth spreading" might be.

  • Apr 13 2013: Marcus Mosiah Garvey - Jamaican (inspirational speaker, Social Activist, Universal Negro Improvement Association
    in the cause of African redemption, philosopher, educator, founder of Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League).
    He was an outspoken leader, dedicated to promoting African-Americans and resettlement in Africa. He was self educated and made a mark in the history books as a believer in dominant black nationalism.
    A talk today would include Self pride, pride in one's race as we try to uplift black youths from the negative self impressions and idealisms created by 'others'.
