He was an advocate of equal rights. He spoke up about the rights of african americans and paid people highly for their services where other people may have treated them badly due to their difference.

He never gave up, at every let down he kept pursuing. Today his circus still goes on as Ringling Bros. Barnum and bailey circus.

P.S. There is no evidence of him coining the phrase 'there's a sucker born every minute'. He highly valued his audience and it is believed that a rival said it as they watched the queues outside his show.
