M.L.K Vs. Today

Racism was horrible in the 1950's and 60's but Martin Luther King Jr. helped eliminate some of that. While he did not get rid of all of it he did a really good job even though there are still some racial slurs directed towards people. He ended up doing what he believed what was right and helped change the world. It looks like his dream came true.
