Rev.M.L.King Jr was inspired by the Mahatma to lead the Civil Rights movement in a non-violent way - he has written about it movingly in his auto-biography. Mahatma was ofcourse inspired by Thoreau to launch the civil dis-obedience movement. So there's a long history of give & take between the two nations. Besides, Mahatma's ideas and methods are arguably universal & timeless. It's to the credit of the Americans (and their govt) that it didn't take forever once the movement started to enact the civil rights act and become a truly civilized nation. So it's not farfetched to argue that he was instrumental in liberating Americans as well - and none of us would be here even as a 'Non-Resident Alien' but for the Mahatma.
